Meet Tonya McCoy

Workforce Challenge:

Tonya McCoy, a single mother of three children, one of whom is disabled, had been unemployed, primarily
due to the pandemic. Tanya relied on government aid and decided she needed to get into a career that would support her family.

Workforce Solution:

Tonya’s GAIN worker told her about the Transitional Subsidized Employment (TSE) program and referred
her to the South Bay One-Stop Center in Inglewood. After orientation, she was enrolled as a TSE worker
in the City of Hawthorne’s Homeless Services Department. Tonya learned valuable work experience
that helped enhance her skills and give her a new outlook on life and goals.

“Never give up. It only takes one person who believes in you to make a difference, and that’s what I received at the One-Stop Center.”
