As a Program Assistant at The Foundling, Nancy ensures that her floor is organized and running smoothly, and her tasks help her coworkers work effectively and efficiently. It’s Nancy’s first paying job, and she loves every moment of it. She has worked hard to achieve this level of independence: Nancy has lived in one of our supportive residences since 2004, and always felt like she could do more in her life. A few years ago, Nancy joined our Employment Services Program, where she had the opportunity to volunteer at numerous organizations and learn workplace skills. Now, she appreciates the independence and sense of purpose that employment provides.
