Dani started at the Sanford Opportunity Center in late 2019 and has faced several obstacles related to childcare. Both of her children experienced serious mental health concerns, which made it difficult for Dani to attend her scheduled workshops and focus on her job search. When her children were having challenges, Dani kept in touch with the staff, and she was granted Dani Good Cause to help manage her children’s needs. Dani told the team, “I don’t feel like I will ever be able to get a job, not with the way things are now.” Through a hiring event, she was hired to work at the US Census Bureau. Dani describes it as the perfect job for her at this time because she has not worked in many years and it would allow her the flexibility; she needs to take care of her children and set her own schedule.
