Meet Carlray

Meet Carlray

UWGCM Fluor Graduate of December 2018

Meet Carlray, who has turned his life around!  Before enrolling in the Fluor Craft Training Program, Carlray would walk around town, stopping into local businesses asking if they were hiring.  He was determined to find work to provide for his family, but was told time after time that no positions were available. 

That's when he walked into United Way Galveston County Mainland's office asking for help.  He was not looking for charity or a handout, but instead needed help finding work.  After hearing about available spots in the Fluor Craft Training Program, Carlray filled out the application and started classes soon after.  He completed and excelled in the 12 week course and received an amazing job offer soon after from A & A Machine and Fabrication.  Carlray is now employed full-time and is able to secure a lasting future for his family.

"United Way Galveston County Mainland and Fluor of Pasadena have given me a second chance and opportunity.  I strive to break the cycle of recidivism, not only for myself but to pave a way for others who are in need.  With the completion of the program, getting a job, and a vehicle, I have been given a better life for my son and the others around me." - Carlray

Through kindness and by partnering with United Way Galveston County Mainland, you too, can help lift people like Carlray up & out of a cycle of poverty and hardship, so that they can obtain self-sufficiency, as well as, continuing to provide hope and support for others in need.
