Great Things Happen When We LIVE UNITED

When I was 32, I was living in Minneapolis and I found myself suddenly unemployed after nine years in the same job. Being married with three children and a homeowner, I needed to find employment but was having no luck. After 18 months of no solid work I was getting worried. We had used up all of our savings just trying to keep the house – and things were looking bleak. During this desperate time, a friend suggested I contact United Way. 

United Way brought a new hope into my life. They helped me to discern that I needed new skills and job training. My United Way counselor helped me find education financing through the Jobs Training and Partnership Act. This helped pay for technical school and provided daycare for my youngest child. My counselor worked with me for the 12 months I was in school, helping to make me a success. 

I graduated from Red Wing Technical College in 1992.  For the past 23 years, I have been a self-employed Luthier, repairing string instruments. My business is Hawkins Violin Shop and I have been located in downtown Fond du Lac since 2001. I love being my own boss!

My name is John Hawkins, and United Way helped me to shine.

Great things can happen when we LIVE UNITED.
