Meet Brandon Madrid

Brandon is a graduate of our first BankWork$ cohort. Shortly after graduation, he was hired at a local Wells Fargo as a bank teller. Before starting the BankWork$ program, Brandon struggled to make ends meet and pay off medical bills working jobs in the construction and landscaping industries. Having to undergo kidney dialysis three times a week, these manual labor jobs starting to wear him out physically. After completing the program and having steady work with Wells Fargo, Brandon is thrilled to be financially stable for the first time and looks forward to finally paying off his medical bills. Watch more Goodwill Success Stories here
