Make a Difference: OIC of New London County
AGENCY: OIC of New London County Inc.
HER SITUATION: Shaunna was in an abusive relationship for 10 years. She finally left when he physically abused her again. Discouraged, hurt, scared and hopeless, she came to Connecticut to start a new life. She knew she needed a job, but she didn't have any employability skills. Soon after arriving, she came to OIC and was able to earn a Certified Nursing Assistant certificate. She got a CNA position in a nursing home and is getting her life back on track. She attributes her success to OIC and the encouragement she received.
