The Path from Prison to Successful Employment

You are here

For me, Pioneer Human Services is kind of like the parent I never had when I was young. My positive life lessons started here.

When you learn about my past you would probably never guess that today I am engaged to a wonderful man and have two children, I work as a master scheduler for Pioneer Industries in the aerospace division, and I am a fourth-year college student getting my degree in Business Administration. At school, I’ve also been on either the Dean’s or President’s List every semester so far.

So how did I get here? Pioneer encouraged and believed in me and provided me with seven different programs that gave me the tools I needed to succeed.

I came from a home where it was OK to use drugs and commit crimes; in fact, it was encouraged by my parents (my dad is still struggling with drug addiction and my mom is in prison for the fifth time.) I never learned the basic things from my parents like the importance of getting an education, the feeling of self-worth, or the reason to set goals in life - I learned all that from my second family at Pioneer.
