Progress is a process that you have to be willing to go through and WHA was a big part of that process for me. WHA Staff gave me hope and encouraged me to stay focused and positive. Staff also helped me get into the CTA Apprenticeship Program which I successfully completed. Now, I am in CTA management and am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. I recommend WHA for all serious individuals who are trying to grow and develop socially, financially, educationally and spiritually. I am proud to be a graduate of WHA’s program and strongly recommend WHA’s Employment Center to Chicago residents
