In hopes of finding employment closer to home, Mark and Rachel moved back to the Sault. Living in the downtown area, they couldn’t find work, were unable to meet next month’s rent and didn’t have much food left in the fridge.

Feeling helpless about the situation, they reached out for help. The Options Navigator at United Way worked with Mark and Rachel to identify skills and employment options, and directed them to the resources they needed.

Because of the help they received, they found employment within days.  Rachel went back to school and now works at an agency in Northern Ontario. Mark has a full time job and is excited about a brighter, more promising future.
