Our Associates have amazing stories to share. Through our programs they gain acceptance and become valued members of our community as workers, volunteers and artists. Their success is our story.

Without any direction, David found job hunting to be frustrating and seemingly impossible to overcome. We provided David customized employment services that took his specific needs, desires, and interests into account to match him with the City of Burbank work crew. Not only is he a thoughtful and intelligent individual, he’s extremely social, and since he joined this crew, David and his crewmates have become an essential part of the community, befriending and making conversations with passersby, firefighters, and police officers.

Brittany is so outgoing and friendly that it’s hard not to smile when she greets you as a cashier at Del Taco. Through encouragement and gentle suggestions to improve her work, her job coach has helped Brittany to feel more confident making eye contact with customers and to repeat orders back to customers to reduce misunderstandings. Impressed, her managers now rely on her to work at the front counter during the lunch rush!
