Meet Jessica Beamon

Workforce Challenge:

Jessica Beamon, a single mother of two children, was referred to the South Bay One-Stop Center in Inglewood by her Los Angeles County Greater Avenues for Independence (GAIN) counselor. She had been unemployed and experienced being homeless for a year primarily due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During that time, she lost her mother and two other close relatives due to COVID-19.

Workforce Solution:

After Jessica’s orientation at the South Bay One-Stop Center, her case worker recommended the Transitional Subsidized Employment (TSE) program. She was accepted into a 10-month contract with the
non-profit Keeping Konnected where she worked in the Department of Children and Family Services drug
testing unit.
