Programs: empowering people with disabilities by creating opportunities to help them grow and become independent. We offer meaningful and fulfilling work that gives them a sense of accomplishment. We operate 12-safe and comfortable homes for people like Vikki who has lived with us for 26-years and works at West Mont Flower & Trading Company one of West Mont's 4-vocational centers. Like many others, we have helped her achieve what everyone wants - a good job, and a place to call home.
Our son had graduated high school and needed a place that would encourage him to be the best he could become. We were blessed to be able to have him join West Mont in the same city we live in. The home our son lives in is clean, loving, concerned about his well being, and is also concerned about the family dynamic. Our son has grown as a person at West Mont. He enjoys his job that he is so proud of, his house mates and staff. When we bring him home to visit and need to bring him back to his house there is no hassle as he is just as comfortable in one place as the other. It is so nice to know that I can trust the people in his life and they are so willing to share with us what he is doing and what he needs. The angels in his life make life so much nicer for all. I would give West Mont way more than five stars if that was a choice. Thank you West Mont for all that you do for not only our family but for all you do for so many.
