Miami Pay It Forward Fund Offered Loretta Flexibility and an Exciting Career Path
Loretta loved her part-time job at Miami-Dade County’s Department of Cultural Affairs, but she had to take on exhausting shifts as a FedEx package handler to help pay the bills. Then she learned about the United Way Miami Workforce Project. “If I had known about this opportunity earlier on I would’ve taken it. I just didn’t know it was for me. I’m a mom, I’m a wife, I’ve had several careers. But there are opportunities like this out there … [that] could really change your life,” said Loretta.
