Meet Calvin Thomas - He helps keep your city beautiful!

Last updated on March 20, 2023

First Step Staffing is a non-profit organization that empowers individuals who have struggled with homelessness and helps them move forward with their lives. They help with the application process, background checks, interviews, and job placement. Once a job has been secured, First Step aids in mentoring, financial budgeting, and transportation to and from work. 

In Calvin's case, he believed that employment was the key to getting off a path of poverty and homelessness, which led him to First Step Staffing. "This job with the city has done wonders for me. It has changed my life. From day one, I fell in love with it. I look forward to coming to work every day." We're so proud of Calvin for his personal and professional growth and we're thankful for his service to our community! 

First Step Staffing is looking to partner with employers who are seeking entry-level employees. If you have employment openings, contact First Step to see if you're able to provide opportunities like the one that Calvin has received. 

If you are a landlord, or know a landlord, with available space that could be rented to house homeless residents, reach out to the Homeless Services Network of Central Florida. The organization is always looking to create partnerships to help provide housing to some of our most vulnerable community members.
