Derek

Derek came to Arc Human Services in December 2017 when he moved into one of their Community Homes. He began attending the Arc Human Services Training Center and enjoyed interacting with members of the community through the various volunteer opportunities. Derek eventually decided he was ready to expand his horizons and began looking for a job. 

Derek started working through Small Group Employment, where he made broad use of his skills and gained valuable experience in landscaping, cleaning, and warehouse work. After a while, Derek wanted to challenge himself even more and enthusiastically asked to begin working at a new site, Supply One, through the Small Group Employment Program.

He began working at Supply One in March 2018 where he was a natural fit for the position. Derek began increasing his work hours and learning new skills while at Supply One. Derek has excelled in his position and Supply One has offered to hire him as a full-time regular employee. Derek is beyond excited for this new opportunity and those at Arc Human Services are beyond proud of his dedication and commitment to being a stellar employee. Great job, Derek!
