“I feel rewarded when I hear the success stories from the individuals we work with. Whether it is an adult who is able to live independently after many years in a highly structured placement, a group home child developing the skills to transition to independent living, or a student who is returning to his/her home school district. The fact that our services have improved the lives of so many individuals over the years is what keeps me energized. I love being part of an agency that is continually striving to grow and improve. We are not perfect, and as humans, we can make mistakes. However, we view these times as an opportunity to learn, improve and develop into something better and stronger. Only people who think they are perfect will never look at themselves and will stay stagnant.” – Kimberly Benner.
