I started my career in business and education at Waypoint as an intern in their marketing department. I was impressed then and I remain impressed now, after 6 years working in a few different companies, how well this organization is ran. From the top down it always seems to me that Waypoint has a clear focus and utilizes an outstandingly successful "umbrella" business model that uses their for-profit daycare centers to operate their non-profit women and children centers. I am proud to say that I was a daycare kid in their summer program as a youth and that I was able to help them while also starting my career there. I am now a high school teacher in downtown Houston, TX with 85% of the population being "at risk" in one way or another, Houston needs an organization like Waypoint in a bad way! Cedar Rapids is lucky to have them. -Wylie Hachey
