I have over 20 years of experience working with and living with individuals with disabilities. My parents owned and operated a group home in our home and I enjoyed working with my parents helping them build their confidence. It really was like an extension of my family because they were apart of my every day living. I also worked worked for Rescue Mental Health for several years and found it to be rewarding because I built relationships when the doors opened and coffee or a counselor was needed. They knew my name and felt comfortable to share how their day was going and I found that pleasant. Lastly, I have a disabled relative and I have to say honestly she wasn't treated any different from the other kids in our family and she loved it! At the end of the day, we all want respect and a little goes a long way.
