Years ago, Mark entered the program when he was living in a homeless shelter and struggling to find full-time employment. His dream was to find a job as an apprentice welder. With Water Wings' help, he updated his resume, completed Construction Safety Training System (CSTS), practiced his interview skills and applied for numerous jobs.
