Meet Ashley Tellez - Torrance
Ashley Tellez, single mother of one child, applied for numerous jobs and wasn’t receiving calls for interviews. Although she was grateful for the assistance the County provided her, it made being a single parent hard. Ashley wanted to be successful for her and her family so she turned to other resources in her community.
Ashley went to the GAIN Program and began receiving employment assistance under the Job Club. At the end of the program she was enrolled in the Transitional Subsidized Employment (TSE) program and was placed at the Torrance One Stop as an Administrative Assistant.
Outcome and Benefits:
While in the TSE Program, Ashley was able to interview for a permanent full-time position at Molina Healthcare and was hired.
"I am very grateful to have been part of the TSE program at the Torrance One Stop, they trusted me and saw things in me that I hid within myself. They were great people and the support I received from them was very helpful, I don't think I would be where I am today if it weren't for them, it was a bitter sweet feeling leaving the One Stop."
