Below are just a few of the many success stories. We encourage you to stop by the school, meet our students and hear the stories first-hand.
Given Me Hope
I learned a lot of TIG techniques from the teachers. I was struggling at first but improved by watching them and copying their techniques. Plus everyone is so positive, telling you that you can do it and cheering you on. Some days we got food and that was a blessing. The program is free and a lot of them do it out of the kindness of their hearts. They are all nice, sweet and patient. Before I came to the program, I was struggling. This program has given me hope and took some stress away, One of the main things I took from here is to put my trust in God and put God first. I'm super motivated and my mindset is different than when I arrived. The program was really fun and I'm grateful for that.
Going through a lot of Trauma
Today I'm a certified welder. I feel great, I feel wonderful. Amazing journey I just experienced, changed my whole life. I thank God for blessing me with this opportunity. I'm a convicted felon, lost hope, going through a lot of trauma in my life. I want to thank the teacher for their encouragement and motivation. I'm so thankful for the program.
Felt so Blessed
I passed my TIG Stainless steel and MIG certification today. I'm so excited and feel the release of so much pressure. Each person who runs this program, donates to this program you've made me feel so blessed. This program not only made me learn about welding but brought me closer to God. My relationship with Him was so rocky. I've been through a miscarriage, hit rock bottom, experienced depression, quit my job and was hopeless. But I found ReIGNITE Hope. I knew it was an opportunity for me to grow closer to God and learn to weld - something I love to do.
Needed Hope..Something grasp onto
A big accomplishment in my life thanks to the Lord and this program. I was just certified in MIG 3G and Stick 3F. I am in awe and very grateful. I spent some time in prison...more than a little bit. Heard about the class from a friend at Restoration Life Church at a time I needed hope and something to grasp onto. I was accepted into the program. It's been very positive, very supportive and I do believe that I have an opportunity to have a better life for myself and my family.
By the grace of God, I was certified in MIG 3G and Stick 3F. I feel awesome. I've been given another chance. Currently I am re-entering the community. Just out of prison 6-7 month ago. Heard about the program, applied and got accepted and here I am now a certified welder. It's a fast paced environment but felt welcome...it's a different feeling than I'm used to. I'm looking forward to getting a job in the union.
Helped Me Get Sober
I've been a troubled youth since the age of 12, in and out of prison. Being around people who know the Lord helped me get sober and change my mentality. Been sober for two months. Gives me more hope. I got certified in MIG and Stick and look forward to starting a career and changing my life.
