Tackling Life’s Twists and Turns with Hope and Action – Why Shantel’s Story Matters and How You Were a Part of It

“CWJC provided me with so many tools and resources that will not just carry me through this season, but the rest of my life.”

With 14 years in the Air Force and 10 years in the workforce under her belt, Shantel felt pretty secure.

In an instant, everything changed.

A terrible car wreck completely altered her life, putting her out of work and ending her career in the Air Force. Within 6 months, she was down to her last $280 with nowhere to turn.

That’s when she was introduced to the CWJC.

A Life-Changing Interview

“When I met with Susan Elder the Site Coordinator there for the interview process, I wasn’t sure what the outcome would be. However, the more we talked, a peace overcame me, and I realized this was a God thing. CWJC was the answer to my prayers!”

Through her journey as a CWJC student, Shantel learned valuable skills to help her re-enter the workforce, along with financial skills. In addition, she was encouraged, strengthened and learned to trust God even more.

Armed with resume-building tactics, Shantel put together a professional resume and landed an interview on the last day of class. Two days later she was offered the job, completely changing the trajectory of her life.

Because of her experience in CWJC, Shantel plans to come back and volunteer, helping other women in similar situations.
