    Shawn graduated from the NET/BRIDGE program in summer 2018. He learned about the program through Hope House. Hope House gave him a chance to "get off the street and start fresh." Shawn has learned a great deal from the program but he says the most important thing is, "You have to start somewhere. You need to be connected to some type of program in order to network and make connections." Before starting the NET/BRIDGE program Shawn worked at a tire shop. He hopes to be able to advance and find a better job as a result of the program. He already has interviews lined up with FedEx and Waffle House. Shawn says the program helped him to take little steps towards his goals. He adds, "People need to be comforted because it's hard to do it all by yourself. It can be very isolating. Everyone needs a helping hand and Integrity has provided that."

    Demetrius Streeter graduated from the NET/BRIDGE program in summer of 2018. Prior to enrolling in the program Demetrius worked the night shift at Wal-Mart. He notes the tough schedule as a major factor in his decision to attend the NET/BRIDGE program saying, "I needed more sleep. I'd love to find a job where I can work the day shift." He hopes that the skills he's developed in the program will help him as he searches for and acquires a new position. He attributes knowing how to present himself in job interviews to the class saying, "I now know the responsibilities it takes in order to get and keep a job." Demetrius has already been spreading the word about NET/BRIDGE and encouraging people to enroll. "I've told people about it and I hope they decide to come," he says smiling. Demetrius values everything he's learned from the class but he says the best part about the program is, "The people. The teacher was so enthusiastic about helping us. Plus meeting fellow students has been really great." Demetrius already has interviews lined up with FedEx and Waffle House and hopes that one of those opportunities pans out.
