"Why did I choose to work at LIFE?
The PEOPLE..we are like family. I feel at home when at LIFE. I love being surrounded by people who share the same passion for serving these clients as I do, and in turn the kids I work with remind me every day of what is most important in life and to count my blessings. It may look like we are just playing but we are doing a lot of work building life skills for a successful future, and having fun while doing so.
