Michigan Works! Helps Worker with Commuting Concerns
Alexander works in Customer Service at Kilwins in Mackinaw City. Money is tight and when his vehicle started to shake during one of his commutes to work, he got worried. How would he pay for repairs to maintain his vehicle and get him to work? He came to Michigan Works! seeking assistance.
Thanks to BRES funding (Barrier Removal Employment Success), Michigan Works! Career Navigator Kelli was able to help Alexander receive the car repairs he needed.
“I received aid from the lovely people here at Michigan Works! to pay for my car repairs,” reports Alexander. “That made it easier on me to be able to go to work. I learned that it is smart and benefiting for people to save some money to help cover costs for unexplained issues towards vehicles, bills and basic living expenses.”
