David started our North Texas Works program in December 2021 to get help with truck driver training. After being incarcerated for ten years, he struggled to find reliable employment. David often worked temporary day-labor jobs just to pay the bills.
David started CDL training at Action Career Training in February 2022. He obtained his Commercial Driver’s License in March, and began work at Pride Transport in April, averaging $1,000 in earnings each week.
David was very motivated and partnered with his Case Manager, Cynthia Humphrey, every step of the way to obtain this outcome. David wants people who are in similar circumstances to know that finding a new career after incarceration and getting a second chance in life are still possible.
