Career Agent Rhonda Feimster met with David Veney—38, single, two children—to assess his eligibility for the Non-Custodial Parent Employment Program (NPEP), and knew immediately he was qualified for an open KRA position.
NPEP, a component of PGWorks, funded by the Prince George’s County Department of Social Services, offers employment and training opportunities to individuals struggling to stay current with their child-support cases due to a lack of steady income.
Veney’s background in Case Management, Family/Youth Advocacy, and Social Services, as well as his knowledge of the community-at-large, made him an excellent candidate for a KRA Job Developer position. During assessment, Feimster also discovered that Veney is a writer, and had published a book: What Daddy Never Told Me: 7 Conversations Every Parent Should Have With Their Child.
Feimster recommended Veney for interviews with Anthony Featherstone, KRA Program Manager and Alicia Spriggs, KRA Operations Manager. Both were so impressed with his experience and demeanor, that pending the background check, wanted him to start right away.
Feimster concluded, “David started on October 7th, and believe me, he hit the ground running! We are pleased he has joined KRA and know he will be a valuable asset to the PGWorks team and our customers!!”
