Carla: Community Link empowers you
Carla, Administrative Specialist at Community Link
Pregnancy complications forced Carla to leave her full-time food-service job and apply for public assistance. A single mom of five, she had always been self-sufficient. Carla was referred to Community Link where she developed valuable office technology skills. “Initially I was scared...all I knew was food service. The staff recognized I had the potential to do more,” says Carla.
Motivated by the support she received, Carla aspired to work for Talbert House. After a few more months of training and workplace experience, Talbert House hired Carla. She now works for Community Link. “I love the work because I have the opportunity to encourage clients who are distraught about the system. I know how it feels because I have been there. I share my experience and work to keep them motivated to stay committed.”
