Denise moved to Maine from the Midwest in late 2019 to escape a domestic violence situation. When she arrived for her initial orientation at the South Portland Opportunity Center, she told the staff that she was nervous about building a new life. Staff assisted Denise with resources for domestic violence and helped her connect with a counselor. In February, Denise got a job at Maine Health but lost the job after a month because her child could no longer attend daycare. Fedcap staff then referred Denise to a virtual career fair through JobsInME. They also recommended that she investigate UNUM for potential careers since she had customer service experience. Denise applied for a job at UNUM, and she recently reported that she was offered a job.
