Meet Jonna

Workforce Challenge

Jonna was a job seeker with no career path when she visited her local Workforce Center. At the time she had three children and lived on a limited income with very few marketable skills or job prospects.

Workforce Solution

Fortunately, Jonna was eligible for the KHPOP grant, which helped her complete her Medical Assistant training. While enrolled in KHPOP, Jonna was able to obtain training and take advantage of supportive services, like childcare assistance, to help her while she was going to school full time.

Outcomes & Benefits

As a result, Jonna is now employed in the cardiology department at our local hospital as a Medical Assistant. She is very happy with her job and finally has a career.
