Hope Changes Everything

Friends of Jobs Partnership came together to support our community’s job seekers at the 11th annual Faith That Works breakfast fundraiser in April. The event marked JP’s first in-person fundraiser since 2019.

William (top photo, with wife Tomeko and son Marquis) says LifeWorks has benefited three generations of his family. Milly (pictured above, with her daughter) graduated from LifeWorks in 2020, when we pivoted to remote learning during the pandemic.

At the event, LifeWorks graduates William and Milly shared how the training course changed their lives and their families. Milly told the 300-plus people at the breakfast that her LifeWorks experience led to a career-path job in healthcare and the ability for her and her young daughter to move into their own apartment. Participating in a panel discussion with his wife Tomeko, son Marquis and JP President Marc Stanakis, William shared that LifeWorks not only equipped him to provide for his family but made him a better husband and father.

Event sponsors included: ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, Cahill Homes, Pinpoint Wealth Partners and UBS Financial Services.

In-kind support came from: 1-800-Charity Cars, Apenberry’s Gardens, Employment Technologies, PUSH Marketing, Orlando Cleaners and OrlandoJobs.com.
