Tish: "My Whole Life Transformed."
"My life was not living, is what I thought.
I did not want to live. I did not want to face the world. My life wasn't worth living, is what I thought. A lot of times when you're in an abusive situation, you don't know where to go."
Tish learned about Telamon's Employment & Jobs Training program while living in a shelter for battered women. She was 17 years old.
Tish's emotional journey - and success story - is as inspirational as it gets. Thanks in part to the compassionate and focused support provided by Telamon, Tish's life has turned around.
Her story is powerful. Hear it in her own words.
Telamon was awesome. I felt wanted, I felt appreciated, I felt loved, I felt needed. The program goes beyond just a Jobs program. It gives you the backbone to feel independent enough to stand on your own.
In the words of Kathy, the dedicated Telamon employee who worked to support Tish:
"The most beautiful thing...is to know where she was and where she's at now. And to know the impact that Telamon has on people's lives. This is what we stand for.
