Curtis Butler

Curtis Butler, our inaugural Robert Steele Creating a Community that Works client awardee, is originally from the North Lawndale Community, but he did not find his way to the North Lawndale Employment Network until he had decided for himself at age 27 that it was “time for a change.” For Curtis, change “wasn’t easy,” but it was worth it. Before he came through the U-Turn Permitted program, he had never held formal job, but afterward he secured a position as a machine operator at Damron Corporation. Refusing to stop there, Curtis is currently training to be a shift supervisor.
