New partnership leads to new career for BEDS client

Congratulations to TJ, who recently started a new career at Plymouth Place.

TJ reached out to his case manager after losing his job in the food services industry, worried he might fall behind on rent. The COVID-19 pandemic placed increased demand on essential workers like TJ, who has developmental disabilities and was unable to meet that pressure and was subsequently let go. Together, TJ and his case manager completed a work assessment and started to work with our Employment Specialist Bill Burke to find jobs that TJ would be successful and thrive in.

Bill helped find TJ a career through a new partnership with the senior living facility Plymouth Place, an all-inclusive work environment that employs individuals who have special needs like TJ. Plymouth Place is truly compassionate about providing long-term employment and stability. We couldn't be happier about this new partnership and new opportunity for TJ, who is thrilled to be back in the workforce

Finding housing is often the first step but it is never the last. It is our mission at BEDS to help our clients stabilize and rebuild their lives.
