"There are hurdles and obstacles that people have, some of which they create themselves and some of which are just their circumstances. A program like this changes the trajectory of your life."
- Rushon, PPL Career Training Graduate
“PPL helps you establish a great new community and build a new life. I don’t like to think about it, but if I hadn’t found PPL, I think my future would have been prison or death. PPL saved my life.”
- Tara, former PPL Resident
"I have achieved what I set out to do and then some. I am currently employed at Abbott Northwestern Hospital and have enrolled in a secondary education program. I am on my way!"
- Tonya, PPL Career Training Graduate
"I have faced several challenges on my way here, but each one of them has only strengthened me to make me the person I am today. I want to tell everyone that you should never, never give up, even if you're convinced it's all over. It's not over unless you want it to be, and I'm a true example of that."
- Joesf, PPL Career Training Graduate
"It gave me a great deal of confidence, especially as someone who is still learning English. I remember sitting across the table from these three people at the interview and they asked me a question and it was exactly the question I had prepared for."
- Fahad, PPL Career Training Graduate
"PPL has had my back all the way with everything I wanted to accomplish and more. I have been given a home I feel safe in and a quality of life worth living."
- Tammy, PPL Resident
