Miriam Prince is a resident of the Nickerson Gardens public housing community where she lives with her five children, ages 1‐13. As a Security Officer for HACLA’s contractor Cypress Security Inc., Miriam provides security services for the City of Anaheim.
Thanks to the Section 3 program, Cypress Security made commitments to hire Section 3 Residents and participated in HACLA’s Job Fair, which linked HACLA contractors and local businesses with Section 3 Residents. Miriam was interviewed and hired as a permanent employee that same day.
“My kids are looking up to me and I want to do something positive for myself and for them. I want them to see the good things in life as they grow up. You won’t get anywhere unless you take action and control of your life,” said Miriam.
Miriam is excited and relieved that she can now pursue a career in law enforcement and provide for her family. Miriam is thankful for the opportunities that have come her way and wants to make sure that her children have a bright future ahead of them.
