Review for Pomeroy Recreation and Rehabilitation Center, San Francisco, CA, USA
I had the pleasure of playing a basketball game with The Wildcats, a team at Pomeroy Recreation & Rehabilitation Center in San Francisco, many years ago when a non-profit I volunteered for was challenged to a game. It was one of the best experiences of my life. I was so moved by what PRRC was doing for the intellectually disabled community that I organized a fundraiser for them. Years later, I was tired of working in restaurants, and wanted something new. The interaction I had playing that basketball game with clients of PRRC was my inspiration to seek out a job working with this population and I found that job. Still able to utilize my skills from many years in the Food and Beverage Industry, I developed a culinary program to teach kitchen skills to a wide spectrum of disabilities that included autism, ADD, and Downs Syndrome. All of this happened because of that wonderful day when I was a part of that basketball game.
