Valerie's Success Story: From Eminent Eviction and Unemployed to Employed and Stable

On September 27, 2019, "Valerie" joined the CSBG Self–Sufficiency program at Wayne Action Group for Economic Solvency (WAGES) with several issues: eminent eviction, unemployment, medical conditions, and limited family support. Her case manager explained that the program typically lasts three years, but Valerie was determined to graduate within six months. She decided to not sign up for disability because she didn’t want to rely on the government for a check. She was determined to not let her medical condition hinder her.
