ALLY People Solutions would like to congratulate Training Specialist Elaine Suoja on her 30-year anniversary with ALLY! Over the years, Elaine has worked with program participants on everything from job coaching to making connections with local businesses.
She has been instrumental in helping participants at the Hillcrest branch find employment opportunities with places like Target and Walmart. She also helps organize participants’ hours and wages to make sure they are getting what they need. “You have to give our people a chance out in the community,” Elaine says. “I always want to find jobs out there for our people.”
Elaine says her mother was a special education teacher and growing up she always knew she wanted to work with individuals with disabilities. Elaine says she encourages anyone who is interested in ALLY and its services to learn more about it and ask questions. “I think ALLY is a good opportunity for both the staff and the consumers,” she says.
Congratulations on such a special anniversary, Elaine!
