“Just wanted to take the time to appreciate your wonderful staff, especially Philomise, who is always available to come to a shift, always on time, and always willing to do extra assignments as needed.”
“I look forward to going to my weekend placement. I have been going to the same house for three years and working with the same guy. I care about him and look forward to going to work on the weekend. I have a full time job and family so Beacon gives me the flexibility that I need.”
“I am a single mom and take college classes. My job with Beacon lets me work night shifts and weekends in a group home near my home. The work is hard but rewarding.”
