Ethels Tree Of Life Inc
October 27, 2010

I found out about Ethel's Tree of Life from my employer and she recommended I take my consumer for Friday activities. I saw a lot of changes in him as he started to branch out with others and he was always smiling. Before we left for his first activity, he was hesitant (very much so) and I think he had it in his mind that he would not going to enjoy it, after that afternoon, he looked forward to coming back each Friday. Linda is fantastic and I cannot say enough good about her. She is very aware of the specific needs of each youth involved in the program, sets realistic expectations and goals, and is always looking to make the experience as educational and enjoyable as possible. Not only did I see my consumer build friendships, but I found myself doing the same with other support staff and volunteers. I am always looking for ways to spread the word about this wonderful organization.
