 Xavier - holding wooden hearts  Valentine's Day Gift Shop Items

“I’m working and building skills that will help me be successful for the rest of my life” -- Xavier

In 2017, Xavier made the decision to attend Day Services at Easterseals Capper Foundation (ESCF) not only to work and earn a paycheck, but learn how to be more responsible in hopes of becoming as independent as he can be.

While working in our Auto Detail Shop and Wood Shop has taught him the job-related skills necessary for competitive employment, Xavier has also learned “soft skills” such as how to be respectful and understanding of others which are vital on a daily basis.

“Xavier is talented and outgoing. My wish is for him is to reach his dreams and to advocating for himself” -- Chris Ostrander, Adult Day Services Manager

In addition to his job at ESCF, Xavier works as Choral Director at his church with the dream of working in the music industry one day. He enjoys singing, dancing, cutting hair, playing basketball, working out and hanging out with friends in his spare time.
