Meet James, Looking Forward Philadelphia participant

A veteran experiencing PTSD, James left prison needing support and career guidance. At Looking Forward, he found his passion for construction and quickly moved up to supervising his own work crew. James recently transitioned to a new employer with better pay and more stability. Things are definitely moving the in the right direction for James.

"Looking Forward gave me the direction and resources to find the career I wanted. I knew that it was going to take some time to find the perfect job for me. With the help of my job developer we were able to find a position which would get me started."
