Vishon's Story

Vishon was released from prison earlier this year. She was determined to obtain employment and get a car. She came to NEW Reentry Program to assistance, and with help from the case managers not only got a job at Butterball in Mt. Olive, but found a car that she could afford. After being at Butterball 30 days Vishon was promoted to Quality Assurance!

We are proud of Vishon’s hard work and dedication. She made a goal to become self-sufficient, and she reached it with only a little help from NEW Reentry. We know Vishon will continue to succeed with every goal she sets her mind to.
