Ability Links is changing lives every day.
In this case, a linker named Ryan stepped in at just the right time to help a member of the community in a way that has "totally changed" her life. Here is her message to Ryan:
“I'm not sure if you remember, but I met you about five months or so ago. You gave me the ‘Women in Prison Advocacy Network’s’ number. I contacted them and was very quickly designated a mentor. Well, my mentor is amazing, kind and very generous with her time. She has helped me regain my confidence, too.
As a result, I have spent the last few months treating applying for a job as if that was my full-time job!
I couldn't be happier than to tell you I start employment in my new job in a few weeks. What makes it even better is that I really want the job I will be doing, it's perfect and I can't wait to start. I actually was offered more than one position which is amazing.
So thank you, Ryan, for taking the time that day to help me.
It has totally changed my life."
