Meet Johnny

Landing the Job

By Deacon Dave Larrabee

Johnny is one of those people with an “attitude of gratitude.” He came to the Lamb Center and focused right away on obtaining employment. Sometimes we think that a person who is unemployed and has lost everything would find it difficult to be grateful.

Often waiting in line for lunch, Johnny talked about how much he appreciated the Lamb Center and the volunteers who listen and are so helpful. With our job counseling support, Johnny’s efforts resulted in a job at Red, Hot and Blue.

He also received a scholarship at NOVA Community College to study heating and air conditioning. Johnny’s story has motivated other guests to seek job counseling and work hard at getting a job of their own.

The names and photos have been changed to protect the dignity of those involved.
