Travis - Consistency is key
Travis, a person you can ALWAYS count on for a friendly smile and getting the hard work done.
Travis had very little stability in his life, he reported to us. He wasn’t sure how he was going to pay bills because he lacked consistent work and even said “I know what industries I want to work in but without direction, I have no idea how to start connecting with them.”
He was longing for a few things in life to feel successful but most of all, time with his family. Because of his lack of stability he found himself constantly falling short in important areas to him like money, a plan and a connection with those around him. Travis had a desire to go back to school and learn a trade, but struggled to point himself towards the right path.
A friend had been chatting with Travis about life and recommended GLISS as a place with many opportunities for growth - professionally and personally. He said to us “I knew it was time for me to make a plan and GLISS has been great about being able to provide a variety of opportunities and a flexible schedule while I started that process. I felt like I was in my '20’s' at 40 years when it came to my stability and routine.”
Weeks turn into months and Travis is still showing up to work every single day. We asked him what changed in his life since coming here? “I have a strong routine for my day. I have much less stress because of the financial stability I have now. I actually have a savings account! Most importantly I have been able to build an even stronger relationship with my son. He comes to visit me monthly and I can help to support him financially and guide him as he enters adulthood.” Travis replied.
WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU! Travis, you have created HOPE in many lives already.
