Q | What others say about Dawn:

A | "Dawn is a direct support professional that truly goes above and beyond. She continues to assist in any way she possibly can. In the past year, Dawn has picked up additional responsibilities each week in the absence of the Team Leader. She has volunteered to pick up extra hours in a moments notice. She truly knows the ladies and strives for seamless service delivery. I continue to receive positive feedback from family members, guardians, co-workers, and the ladies at 27th." ~Cara Conaway, Director of Residential Services
