“Two years ago, I checked into the Elizabeth Inn and began searching for job postings in the MUST computer lab. I got a job as a sales clerk and completed the shelter’s 6-week program. I constantly refined my resume and polished interview skills with the help of MUST Education and Employment staff. Soon, I accepted a better position at a higher wage with a public storage facility and they offered me an apartment on site! I still stop in and see my friends at MUST who helped me so much. --Tony
