Jorge came to Employment Services after not working for many years. He had always worked as a custodian but wanted to do a different and less physical kind of job. Independence Now assisted Jorge to find two different jobs in the auto industry. He started doing data entry and then became a Porter, where he drove a car for the first time in years. The work had a huge impact on Jorge by enabling him to do work that he enjoyed and was less physical. His confidence and self esteem grew. Since securing employment he also got a better apartment and is enjoying his life much more!
