Throughout the years, George’s dedication and work ethic have earned him numerous promotions. He began working as a dishwasher and is now a prep cook. As a prep cook, George is gaining new skills and is moving toward a career as a chef.
Employment connects people with disabilities to their communities and leads to greater independence. George tells us that his favorite part is “having my own money, and affording my own living situation.”
