Downsize Farm makes a point to recognize the accomplishments of our clients in many of the areas of their lives, but we make a special effort to celebrate the employment successes we see as our people prepare for integrated community jobs.
This Spotlight shines on GENEVA “DUDE” SUTCLIFFE!
Dude has always been an outspoken self-advocate, but when she learned to look people in the eye, be respectful and cheerful, she became even more dynamic. People have learned that Geneva will be polite and pleasant when she speaks up to ask for her needs. This new ability will be a great asset in the workplace, as Geneva asks her employer questions politely and treats her coworkers pleasantly. Because Geneva has made such great progress, she is the recipient of the “Hokey Pokey Award”, because she turned herself around – and after all, that’s what it’s all about!!
