Aaron B. is a residential treatment client with WestCare Gulf Coast and is part of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Treatment, Recovery and Workforce Support Grant program. He is also a U.S. Army Combat Veteran. In February, he began working at Hammer Haag Steel, Inc.
Glen Blickenstaff, Chief Operating Officer at Hammer Haag Steel, Inc. wrote the following about Aaron:
We run a large fabrication facility with multiple departments. In a short time, Aaron has worked in paint, assembly, prefabrication, and fabrication. My only difficulty is that every manager wants him to work in their department!
Within a few weeks of working here, Aaron was welding. This is amazing as we frequently have people that come to us with years of experience but fail to weld to our standard and have to be trained. Aaron had no experience, but has the capacity to be an excellent welder.
We are very happy to have Aaron as well as others from the WestCare facility. Thank you for all that you do!
