Edgar J. Helms Outstanding Achiever Award
After caring for an ill parent and facing other unexpected challenges in his life, Christopher Powell found himself unemployed and homeless.
Christopher was connected with the Right Path program at Goodwill and he began to see the possibilities in his future. As a class participant, Christopher shared his personal story with the group and even helped the other participants. He soon realized with a little more work, he could get back some of what he had lost.
He completed Job Development and Job Readiness programs, and found secure employment and a place to live. With the assistance of Goodwill, Christopher is back on his feet and ready to take on the next challenge that comes his way.
“Anybody can go through this, anybody. Just don’t give up. Keep trying every day.”
