Testimonials and Success Stories

I love working with so many very good, very kind, helpful and humble staff, and I enjoy the team spirit. I like the administration’s recognition of personal needs and pleasures in terms of reasonable flex time. I love the “family spirit” as well. Many of us have become lifelong friends. I also love the benefit package – it is very valuable.

I have learned to remember that some, many people, our customers, have it harder in almost all aspects of being alive; I now am more aware of the need to upgrade their experiences and also advocate for social respect for them. I would recommend that people learn, for themselves, more about who is less fortunate, to get involved in a personal and experiential way, to say hello, to decidedly open their hearts and see the reality of these persons’ dilemmas and perhaps get involved in solutions; Then I would recommend they volunteer, help financially if feasible, and if inclined, consider a career or a vocation in a helping field. Finally, I would encourage them to talk about these matters with their friends, family, and everyone they know and meet. Pass it on - Plant a seed - Grow it!
