St. John Bread and Life Profile: Wilfredo Morales

“Everything was planned for me here. It’s a great place to work; you just have to be built for this.”

Wilfredo was living in temporary housing and came to Bread and Life as a client in 2008 to use the internet and library to look for a job and inquire about other services. He met with a case manager who told him that Bread and Life was looking for a bilingual male case worker. Wilfred applied for the job, and got the offer. His dedication, people skills and hard work has led to his promotion as senior case manager on the social services team. Wilfredo will tell you that what he likes best is:.

“The one on one interaction with clients, the reason we’re here, the customer service piece – without it, forget about it.” He wants people to know that.“This is definitely a great place. Bread and Life can be a backbone for an individual or family that has no one to turn to and needs some support. We will get you there. Everyone benefits from this agency"
