Single dad moves from assistance to well-paid work

February 10, 2017

Donald is a highly ambitious man in his early 60s. He is a single dad of two beautiful children with almost 10 years of experience in trades, mostly self-employed to have better control over time for family. Unfortunately this did not work out and he had to seek support from BC Income Assistance (welfare).

“Thank you again for your support and hard work to make this happen” – Stephen Sowinsky

Stephen moved from Montreal in 2009 with a big dream of being an animator and graphic designer. Being from out of town, Stephen was far away from his loving and supportive family and in a foreign place where he had no social connections or network in place. He had a diploma in Fine Arts and a degree in Art Education but could only land temporary warehouse jobs for four years before deciding to seek help.
