With unemployment in Oregon at continually high rates, many of our residents struggle to find consistent work. Last month Eric, a long-time IHI resident, secured employment after almost two years of searching for work. Over the years, he worked with Resident Services staff to expand his resume by taking advantage of volunteer opportunities with IHI and attending job fairs and seeking other employment opportunities posted by IHI staff. After attending countless job fairs all over the county, he finally found the right match and was offered a job! Within a week he was working as a prep cook. Eric stays in touch with IHI resident services staff and reports that the job is going well. After such a long search, he is thrilled to be back at work and on the road to financial stability.
