The Path to Employment Starts with Community
When I was asked to start the new Community Based Day Program for Progress Unlimited, I heard “Day Program” and immediately said yes because that’s been all I’ve done my entire adult life. Then the “Community Based” part started sinking in, and my 38 + years of sheltered work started choking me up. But if nothing else, I am determined.
My first young lady, Meghan, while challenging due to her need for social skills training, had amazing computer skills. It was easy to identify her pathway to employment. I was also blessed with the most amazing staff person whose niche was development. So, Meghan’s week of experiences in her desired field of data entry filled up quickly.
