Kerrie Christian


 

Georgia’s incarceration rate for adults is about 35 percent higher than the national average . In 2014 Kerrie Christain was part of that statistic. That same year she was also given a second chance to change her life for the better through the Train2Work program, a re-entry program for ex-offenders. 
 
In collaboration with the Governor’s Office of Workforce Development and more than five other local partners, Goodwill helped prepare Christain and 10 other program participants for life after their release.

“Before I even heard about the Goodwill program I was lost,” Christain says. “I was trying to figure out what I was going to do with my life – the next step.”

The program helped her develop a plan and learn a new skill set. More than that, it gave Christain the confidence to jump into the job market after her release.
