Making life better extends beyond our profession, challenging us to reach out.

Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound is a nonprofit based in Arizona that serves the needs of families going through homelessness.

With an official cut of the ribbon in February 2017, Staff Logic became the sponsor of the employment center at Homeward Bound. Families that come to the center are provided with high-quality job training and skills-building resources, guiding them on a pathway out of poverty.

Ashley’s Story

Ashley and her 7-year old daughter are new residents to Homeward Bound as of February 2017 and became enrolled in our Staff Logic Employment Center, staffed by AWEE career specialists, on March 21, 2017. Ashley began the program with a few barriers which included child care, financial issues, lack of experience and skills, and background offenses which caused her to become incarcerated. She was released in 2015, and has not looked back since.

Although faced with challenges, Ashley right away displayed that she was eager to achieve success no matter how long it took. She periodically visited the employment center to touch basis with the Career Advisor on her days off work. Eventually she returned to complete her “Center Expectations Check List” which included the Holland Codes Assessment, Individual Employment Plan, Resume Development, Legal History Overview, and Mock Interviewing, all within the same week!

At this point in time, Ashley mentioned that she felt uncomfortable at her current place of employment due to an immediate supervisor being verbally and mentally abusive. She resigned from the position anad aggressively began her job search while visiting the employment center and while at home. Over this short period of time, Ashley has shown great determination and commitment to reaching her goals. One specific long-term goal was working as a Mentor or Peer Support Specialist in order to “give back,” a goal we’re proud to say nd she achieved within weeks of completing her IEP with her Career Advisor.

On April 24, 2017, Ashley began working as a Peer Support Specialist for Community Bridges, Inc. (CBI). She is employed on a full time basis with benefits, and is currently still in training. She visits the employment center from time to time to provide updates, talks about life’s challenges, or ask general questions. Ashley continues to remain positive, and understands that personal self-development is vital to success. In addition to work, Ashley attends a 12-step sober recovery program once a week at The Salvation Army. She is also a preschool teacher at North Phoenix Baptist Church, which she attends on Sundays.
Ashley is a success because she exemplifies transformation from the inside, out. She credits her faith and past experiences for bringing her to where she is today, and strongly believes in giving back to the community.

Adopt-A-Family

Each year at Christmas we participate in the Salvation Army’s Adopt-A-Family program that provides donations to children and parents who are struggling financially and cannot afford the luxury of Christmas gifts.

AWEE connects clients, who are underemployed, unemployed, re-entering the workforce, changing careers or starting a business, with the resources needed to help and support them to find better jobs in order to create a better tomorrow for themselves, their family and their community.

Esperanza Women’s Center

Throughout the year, we donate computer equipment and children’s clothing to the Esperanza Woman’s Center. As a faith-based organization, Esperanza Women’s Center provides a safe place for women who are facing pregnancy and ensures they have the resources needed to have a healthy pregnancy.

They educate lawmakers, policymakers and the public as advocates for changes to protect and improve the health of our communities.
