A recent comment from a family member of one the individuals we support:
“I had a lot of cause to deal with Key Workers and Social Services. I can honestly say during that time I never met a Key Worker who put themselves out that much for one of their clients. She was clearly incredibly professional and had gone out of her way to help him at a very difficult time. The fact that this was on her day off is even more credit worthy.”
