The Gift of WorkEmployment Training
There’s no greater satisfaction than being paid for a job well done. But many of our clients have never known that feeling.
This July, we’re expanding the Work Skills portion of our therapeutic Day Program for adults with disabilities. For the first time, we’ll offer employment training. Clients will work under the direction of a job coach who will liaison with local employers. Clients will be able to choose from participating employers to work in retail, restaurants, or other businesses.
$10,000 helps us hire a fulltime job coach.
$5,000 helps purchase equipment to train clients.
$2,500 helps us transport clients to work.
$1,000 helps purchase program supplies.
Timmy spent his childhood baffling the medical community. His digestive issues and seizure activity were so profound, doctors didn’t understand how he could still be alive. His mom devoted herself to medical research and finding a place that could care for her son. Between hospitalizations, he lived in various group homes in New York. At the last one, he had so many injuries his mom sought another solution. They headed west.
Since moving into an Angel View home, Timmy is calmer, more expressive, and has far fewer seizures. He loves the staff, his housemates, our therapy dogs and his word board. He’s so adored by staff, his mother says happily, “Now he has more than one mommy.”
