"Get Hired!" Program Prepares Students to Enter the Workforce

Rhode Island’s poor economy and high unemployment make it twice as hard for many Crossroads clients to compete for jobs. Just finding the resources one needs to look for work while being homeless is very difficult to manage. Fortunately, the Education and Employment Services programs at Crossroads can help make the transition to the workplace a little easier. A visit to Leanne Ovalles’ “Get Hired!” class, offered by Crossroads’ Intensive Pre-Employment Program, provides an opportunity to meet some very hard-working students and learn what they are doing to prepare for the workforce.

Client Spotlight: Thomas Hunold

Client Spotlight: Thomas Hunold

When Thomas Hunold became homeless, he had absolutely nothing left. Long gone was his financial success as a business entrepreneur who operated several successful martial arts schools. He used to pal around with sports celebrities, and he enjoyed a wonderful home, family life and beautiful children. Bad decisions and bad associates led him to ruin, and eventually, homelessness. “I had hit bottom,” Thomas says, “and I ended up in the Urban League homeless shelter. Luckily, I went to Crossroads to hang out during the day and meet with a case worker.” It was in the Crossroads Community Room that the outreach worker, Luis Pinto, reached out to Thomas and asked him if he would be willing to join in one of Crossroads’ neighborhood cleanup efforts. “I figured it was better to do something positive than to sit around doing nothing,” Thomas says, “and, I would have less chance of getting involved in something that might make my life worse. I just wanted to move forward, not get stuck.”

Home For The Holidays: Ingrid and John

In recent months, the outreach team at Crossroads has been helping many people who have never been homeless before, and most of them have no idea what kind of help is available to them. Carlos, a Crossroads outreach employee, recently heard about an older couple, Ingrid and John, who lost their home and were temporarily staying with a friend.
