This real world experience helped Ozzy transition from high school, where he had become so familiar and comfortable, to working, earning a paycheck, and gaining greater independence. Ozzy received tools and training through the program that enabled him to get a job at the Roanoke SPCA where he has a competitive salary. Ozzy says, “Goodwill helped me find a job. I love my job at SPCA.”
