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.

Impressed, her managers now rely on her to work at the front counter during the lunch rush!
