Testimonial

“It feels like a community here. All the staff from the different departments and the day program, work so hard every day with the same goal in mind, providing the residents with the best quality of care possible and opportunities for growth. Working with the residents for as long as I have, they have been as much a part of my life, as I have been in theirs. It’s a great feeling to come back from the weekend and be told that you were missed by one of the residents and know that being here makes a difference in their lives.”

 Jennifer Riggio – Staff Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professional
