From Isolation to Independence:

 Kristen’s Journey with TURSA

Kristen wasn’t looking for a handout. As a single parent of two, she’d always been fiercely independent. But life had thrown her some curveballs. Raising a child with special needs while battling epilepsy herself left her feeling isolated and struggling to find employment. The stigma surrounding her condition made things even harder. “It felt like I was falling into a dark hole,” she remembers.

A glimmer of hope arrived through Tursa employment and training organisation. Reaching out for help was a big step, but TURSA met her with compassion, not judgement. “They didn’t see me as another statistic but as a person with potential,” Kristen says.

With TURSA’s support, Kristen began to rebuild her confidence. They connected her with counselling services, helped her navigate job interviews, and offered practical assistance. Slowly but surely, she started to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Then came a life-changing moment. TURSA’s employment Adviser, Shayne, saw an opportunity at a local store and introduced Kristen to the manager. The interview went well, and soon, Kristen was starting a new chapter as a sales assistant. “The steady income brought much-needed stability. I no longer worry about putting food on the table,” she says with relief.

But the benefits went beyond finances. The job gave Kristen a sense of purpose again. “I can provide for myself and my children,” she shares, a newfound pride in her voice. “Knowing I have a safety net in emergencies is incredibly empowering.”

Kristen realised she wasn’t alone

Perhaps most importantly, TURSA helped Kristen realize she wasn’t alone. They were a supportive network, rooting for her success. “There are people who genuinely care about my well-being,” she says, her voice filled with gratitude.

Michael’s Inspiring Story:  Finding Future with TURSA’s Assistance

Let’s talk about Michael, who faced big challenges but never gave up. With TURSA’s support, he turned things around and made a bright future for himself.

Finding Future

Before TURSA came into his life, Michael had a lot of health problems including a neurological disorder, bulging discs, trapped nerves, and fibromyalgia. These made it hard for him to move around and do things. But when TURSA entered the picture and began to present options and possibilities, things started to change and helped Michael to find his future.

Michael’s spirit remained undaunted in the face of adversity. A former rigour and painter, he faced the daunting task of redefining his career path to align with his unique circumstances. The journey was a challenging one, a testament to his unyielding perseverance.

“I was unsure if I could ever regain my footing. My marriage had dissolved, and a future seemed distant,” recounts Michael, echoing the resilience that fortified his resolve.

Finding Time

TURSA emerged as the guiding beacon that illuminated Michael’s path to transformation. Under their consistent guidance, Michael unearthed latent talents and transferrable skills, rekindling a sense of purpose that had long been eclipsed. Through months of exploration, he unveiled his new future within the disability sector – a choice that would rewrite the script of his life in profound ways.

Today, Michael has continued to develop his future as an independent caregiver, tending to the needs of a quadriplegic man with an outpouring of empathy and commitment. His daily routine, from hygiene upkeep to household management and gardening, symbolizes an indomitable spirit that knows no bounds.

“I’ve discovered a renewed sense of purpose, working in a realm where my efforts make a genuine impact,” beams Michael, pride emanating from every word.

Yet Michael’s journey doesn’t stop here. With a heart full of resolve, he is poised to embrace a new chapter with Get Going Support, broadening his horizons to include more extensive community involvement and engagement. His story embodies the harmonious partnership between personal dedication and the steadfast assistance of organisations like TURSA.

Finding Inspiration

Michael’s testament not only showcases his unwavering dedication but also underscores the vital role of TURSA as a cornerstone of support. Together, their collective efforts have facilitated his finding future, illuminating a pathway for others facing similar challenges.
