Shawn came to us in July of 2017 and has really been impressive in how he has turned his life around. When he first came in he was unresponsive and had no desire to work, he was very fragile. Slowly he started to come back and asked to work, starting with one a week and gradually increasing. Shawn currently works twice weekly as a janitor in the office. Shawn has a passion for working as a janitor and has high standards of his work. He has recently with another participant opened a coffee stand at the office on Thursday that they run in the reception area. Shawn makes the coffee and also handles the money and has input into what is sold. Shawn is expanding further, as well as working his two jobs at the office; he wants to volunteer at the animal shelter working with cats. Shawn is a great example of what can be achieved with our participants.
