What our participants and their families are saying about EES
"I like to stay busy and find my job very interesting. I now have the opportunity to meet a lot of new people and find working downtown Seattle exciting. I feel better about myself and am more confident about my abilities to perform my job thanks to the help from Eastside Employment Services."
Kristan Johnson, King County Superior Court
"My job coach helps me learn new tasks on my job. She visits me on the job and helps keep my boss updated and happy with my work. She also makes sure everything is going smooth for me at work. I really like my job. I like the pay and the benefits. I like the people I work with and I like my duties. I like learning new tasks. I do okay with changes, too. I go with the flow. I do like variety on my job."
Michele Appell, Ikon Office Solutions
"Without EES I would not have this job I love. I like the people I work with, I earn a good living and that gives me security. I will probably work here until I retire."
Travis Uhler, City of Seattle Municipal Court
