I know Ronnell as I am his Probation Officer. I was there when he disclosed that Key Food had decided to lay him off and he has been applying to numerous jobs since. Ronnell attends employment programs, and goes to any interview that I refer him to. He currently had to cancel his cell phone because he could no longer make payments and this has caused a strain of his ability to find employment. In order to inform him of any job opportunities, some of which have very short notice, I would have to go to his house and that may not always be possible. A phone will alleviate those burdens and make him readily accessible/available for seek employment opportunities.
