Meet Britany Thomas
I was a single mom at the age of 20 with very little help, no money, no car, and no job. At the time, I was depressed and I had no idea how I would pay my bills or get to where I needed to go. After applying for cash assistance through the Job Center, I was referred to Goodwill Easterseals Miami Valley for the Comprehensive Case Management and Employment Program (CCMEP) program. They not only helped with the financial situation, but also helped rebuild ME. I was introduced to ME, finding my character and confidence. The program has been a blessing to me and my son in so many ways ever since.
With the help of CCMEP, I learned more about how to be a leader and not get stuck in the customs of this world. Through my upbringing, I’ve always been a firm believer of God’s promises, but it was a great reminder that the place I was in at the moment, was only temporary. I knew I would overcome my circumstances, especially with my CCMEP Coordinator’s help and support. She was there every step of the way to help me get my life on track and accomplish my goals.
I am employed full time as a banker and teller for PNC. Reflecting back on my journey, I am so grateful and appreciative of all the help I received. Now I am able to share my story and inspire others to keep pushing. “Your circumstances and environment do not determine your future. Your faith and drive does.”
