Today we are celebrating Aster, who has been in her accounting job for well over a year now. 🥳🥳🥳 Join us in congratulating Aster!

Happy First Day of Work to Aster from Eritrea! Aster participated in our Jobs Program, and her determination, professionality, and giving heart truly stand out to us. Even before receiving her employment authorization documents as an asylum seeker, she offered to lend her skills as a volunteer in our Jobs Program, interpreting for those who speak Tigrinya and Amharic. She worked as an Accountant for +20 years in Eritrea, but like many other immigrant jobseekers, initially struggled to find work in her field in the US. With her steady diligence, patience, and impressive skill set, Aster secured a great position as an Accountant at a nonprofit in San Francisco. We think this will be a fantastic job for Aster's financial skills and compassionate heart. Join us in congratulating Aster!! 💛

Big Congrats to Yrgalem (left), who just passed her US Citizenship test!! Yrgalem originally came to the US from Eritrea as an asylum seeker. We helped her get a job at a local hotel over a year ago (where she is still working!) and recently supported her with Citizenship mock interviews. She told us last week that she passed the test and is now a US Citizen! 🤩 Here is Yrgalem with her friend (middle) and Employment Program Manager, Hanna (right).

Congratulations to our Jobs Program participant, Yrgalem from Eritrea, who was just promoted to a full-time job at a hotel in Berkeley! We helped her get a part-time job at the hotel a few months ago, and she has been doing such a great job there, that the hotel just offered her a full-time job. 😁 YAY! Here is Yrgalem (left) with her friend (middle) and VACCEB Employment Specialist, Hanna (right). Way to go, Yrgalem! 🤗

⭐️ CLIENT UPDATE ⭐️ Ahmed has been employed at this job for +4 months now, and says he likes the job and the company treats him well. 😊 Keep up the good work, Ahmed!

We are very proud of Ahmed, our Path to Self-Sufficiency (PSS) Program participant, who recently got an Administrative/Logistics position with a local freight company! Ahmed has an impressive +20 years of experience in logistics/operations in the industrial sector in Yemen. Unfortunately, extensive work experience abroad is no guarantee that newcomers will be able to get a job in their professional fields in the US. With Ahmed's incredible perseverance, and with the support of VACCEB and Upwardly Global's employment counseling, Ahmed secured this position in his field. Congrats, Ahmed! 😊 🚛🚖🚉✈️

He unfortunately suffered a layoff a few months ago, but we are so proud of him for getting right back into the job search despite this difficult setback.

I am reaching out to the Vietnamese community to help fill a special need. Enriching Lives provides Family Homes for adults with developmental disabilities and we have recently been asked to provide homes with Vietnamese/Cantonese speaking caretakers in Contra Costa and Alameda counties. Do you have an extra bedroom and a heart for helping others? Our Family home providers care for one or two individuals in their home, providing care and supervision to adults with disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Autism, Intellectual Disabilities, and Traumatic Brain Injury. Our providers need to be bilingual with average computer skills. The most important quality of a Family Home Provider is a commitment to the well-being and personal growth of the individuals they care for. As a Family Home Provider, you will receive a tax free stipend of $1400 to $2300/month per individual. You will receive support from Enriching Lives to assist you in providing services in your home such as initial and continuing education, the support of a multidisciplinary team, 24 hour on-call professional support, and overnight relief support. Enriching Lives staff will visit you and the Individual regularly to provide support and ensure that the Individual’s goals are being met. For more information or to register for an Information session, please call Paula Meyer at our office Mon-Fri at 925-344-4565 or visit our website at www.yourenrichedlife.org. Our Concord office is located at 2151 Salvio Street, Suite 272, Concord, Ca, 94520
