Caitlin met with her UMOS W-2 Financial and Employment Planner. She acknowledged her situation, understood what she needed to do, and in the process became her own best advocate. In June, 2014 Caitlin obtained her GED, and obtained full time employment with Express Employment Professionals, earning $12 an hour.
