Meet Nathan!

Finding a career can be an intimidating journey, especially for someone with a disability, which why we offer employment services. Nathan is a client at LIFEDesigns & receives assistant from our Employment Consultants who help him find a job in the community that both complies to his abilities & helps him learn and achieve independence. 

After graduating Highschool in 2019, Nathan wanted to begin his search in finding his first job and asked LIFEDesigns for help. After some searching, we introduced Nathan to a volunteer opportunity at Sans Souci and helped him complete a job assessment at Kroger on cart pushing. Both of these experiences helped Nathan learn what kind of job might be ideal for him & led him to his job today!

With support from our employment team, Nathan applied for and got hired at Donut Central in the beginning of 2020. Nathan is a hard worker and his manager always has positive things to say about Nathan’s work ethic and mentioned that “Nathan is a huge help to the shop when he folds the donut boxes during our busy Saturday mornings”.

We are so honored to have been part of Nathan’s journey & we are so proud of all he has accomplished over the past year.
