Individuals Leave with Much More than Employment After StepUp

Week after week, the Employment team encounters many special individuals. These individuals come from all different walks of life, with different stories and backgrounds. The one thing that these individuals have in common is the recognition for change in their lives, and they decide to take that first step for change with StepUp and the Employment Team. Even though participants start the Employment Week with the sole purpose of finding a job, individuals always leave saying they received so much more. Testimonies of that "much more" from last weeks graduating class ranged from the building of confidence individuals never knew they had, all the way to the rebuilding of lost faith. Hearing the personal experiences of change each person received throughout last week’s class reminded me of how special StepUp is, not only to the community but to me as well. StepUp is an organization that cares about its community and puts God first in serving that community. There are not many organizations like it!

“The Best Way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.” -Barack Obama
