John Ealy

TROSA Aftercare Services/Job Readiness Class

Volunteer for 3 years

TROSA (Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers, Inc.) has a remarkable record of success, and John is part of the reason why. John recruited, trained and led a team of young professionals from Blue Cross/Blue Shield of NC that greatly increased TROSA’s ability to give its residents one-on-one resume and interview coaching.  For many participants, this coaching was a first chance to develop the skills that are required to succeed in the working world. 

Thanks largely to John and his team, 100 percent of TROSA graduates are able to find full-time employment. When John had to leave TROSA, he made sure that it had the structure, leadership and staff in place to carry on the program that he’d established, and it has continued to flourish. 

Thank you, John Ealy, for your exceptional leadership!  Your professionalism and commitment have made a real difference in the lives of others.
