It was a cold January day in 2005 when I walked in through the doors on Montreal Street. I was enrolled in the Child and Youth Worker program at St. Lawrence College and spoke with Anita about doing my placement at H’art. Little did I know, when I started my placement, this would change my life. I wanted to say thank you to the staff, and thank you to the participants for where I am today. When I moved to London, Ontario, I switched from Child and Youth Worker to Developmental Services Worker, graduated, and I now work for Hutton House as an Employment Specialist, assisting people with disabilities find employment. The other day I was assisting some of our job seekers with interview questions when I read “who has impacted you most in making a decision in choosing this field? I automatically thought of everyone at H’art. So once again, thank you for helping me find my passion in life. Thank you for the amazing memories that I still cherish. Keep up the hard work that you do there and I hope to visit again someday.
