Jeff is a very humble man. When told that he was a recipient of the Personal Achievement Award, his response was one of disbelief… “Really?”, he said.
When Jeff came to ODC, he was in a very dark place. His challenges were many, and had worsened over the previous 10 years.
But Jeff is a tremendous individual who just needed the encouragement to trust again - in himself and others - and to accept the support and opportunities that were offered.
Jeff’s accomplishments during his six years working with ODC have been remarkable. He has a very strong work ethic and takes pride in his work… he is seen as one of ODC’s most dependable and flexible workers! He now enjoys his co-workers as well, sharing jokes and initiating conversations.
Witnessing Jeff’s transformation has been a true gift for those who support him. When we think of ODC’s mission, we think of Jeff… he has truly been empowered to achieve his work and life goals.
Congratulations, Jeff, on receiving ODC’s 2016 Personal Achievement Award!
