Savara Willis - I Will Work

Savara Willis - I Will Work

Savara Willis was very motivated when she came to Goodwill.

A single mother with six children, Savara had been unemployed for three years and was determined to get off welfare.

The Dorchester resident enrolled in First Step, Goodwill’s job readiness program and then completed the food preparation training program at Goodwill.

Using her newly acquired skills, including important interview techniques, Savara landed a full-time position at Dave and Busters in Braintree, and she quickly promoted.

“Things have worked out well for me,” Savara said. “I feel blessed I found something I like to do.”

Savara is also in Goodwill’s Beyond Jobs program, which helps single mothers with issues such as financial literacy and career planning.
