I love the people there. They are the sweetest people. (the clients) The staff/ 1/2 and 1/2 some of them there love it . and they stay because they love it and love what they do. others are burned out. and need to
be replaced. l love how they offer the dance night and the happy hour for the clients. IT gives the clients time to be themselves and time to be with others just like them. Have what we as ( Normal, whatever that is) have a dance night and have a productive life instead of just laying around. Gives them a place to go and to get therapy , OT, PT etc depending on the need. The clients are so much fun. Don Herndon is amazing. I love the programs that Easter Seals has to help put people to work. Gives the Testing of different skills set to find out what type of job someone would be qualified for. Makes u think , I know I did. Ex I never thought of a Factory Job, still wouldn't but its nice to know I have the skills to apply for one. You learn things about yourself with those test. Plus I went there to after the testing to do a job resume, it turned into a Job interview That I held for 3 years and left for medical reasons. Loved the job. To be honest, That was my favorite job I have ever held. I learned I missed my calling. Thank you Easter Seals for showing me where my heart lies. Until this day , the clients that use to be there, call me and I have stayed in touch with quite a few of them.
