Meet Chaimaa
Chaimaa joined Tree Trust in June with the desire to find employment in childcare, earn her high school diploma, and save money for her son's future. Over the summer, she completed a paid internship at LaCreche Early Childhood Center in Minneapolis. The staff at LaCreche were so impressed with Chaimaa's presence and work ethic that they recently hired her on full-time! While working, Chaimaa is also earning her GED at Brooklyn Center Academy - Pathways and continues to work with a Tree Trust case manager to complete other personal and professional goals.
