I was laid off from my job in 2017. By December I had been out of work for several months, and had only a few weeks of unemployment remaining. I was in severe financial distress and we were potentially facing foreclosure on our home. I contacted the Lafayette WorkOne office and the Veteran’s representative urged me to attend the VetWorks program. The best part of VetWorks was the constant encouragement from the instructor and the rest of the team at Lafayette WorkOne. The class made me look at my job search from a whole different perspective and within a few weeks of taking the class, I was again employed. I can't thank WorkOne and the VetWorks Team enough for the help - and I can't overstate how important these veterans programs are to vets such as myself.” Michael R.
