Goodwill helped Nancey earn her GED and behavioral health certificate to help build her career and grow into a successful job coach for the adults with disabilities that work in our stores. Nancy works with staff to help them meet their own personal goals, while building a career path of her own.
“Nancey is a Job Coach at Goodwill’s Group Supported Employment program. She currently works with adult participants with developmental disabilities. The fact that she serves in our mission services isn’t the story…it’s what she’s done in the past 7 years to get where she is today.
Nancey’s substance abuse was a result of very dark experiences when she was younger. Add that to a partner who also abused drugs, no high school diploma & raising young children, she didn’t see very many options. While in recovery, she got a job as a store associate at Goodwill & one year later she earned her GED by doing in-house tutoring with Goodwill’s Employee Development program. It was, however, through her 19-month Child Protective Services case & her rehabilitation that got her interested in helping those struggling like she did.”
