"What makes Face It TOGETHER Sioux Falls unique is that many of them have suffered from addiction themselves, and they are a community that knows what you are going through."
I lost my job last September and it really shook me up. When I needed help, Face It TOGETHER Sioux Falls was there for me. They helped me rewrite my resume, prepare for job interviews, and they were there if I just needed to talk. It was hard because the jobs that I was applying for, I didn't have any experience. So I was referred to a staffing agency, and I did a few temporary jobs there. Those temporary jobs gave me the experience I needed to break into other career fields.
I also volunteered to help with the Sioux Falls Sidewalk Arts Festival. It was so fun listening to people's stories, and telling others about what Face It TOGETHER Sioux Falls is about. We handed out a lot of business cards and pamphlets, and we had quite a few people who worked in doctor's offices and wanted to hand them out to their patients.
I really admire Face It and what they do for people in their time of need. The staff is so friendly, and very knowledgeable about different community resources. However, what makes Face It TOGETHER Sioux Falls unique is that many of them have suffered from addiction themselves, and they are a community that knows what you are going through.
Thank you for ALL you do Face It TOGETHER Sioux Falls!
