What Our Team Members Say
Twenty-one years ago, I came to Community Options looking for a full-time job. What I found was so much more – friends, love and an opportunity to make a difference in other’s lives. As a medical clerk, I have learned patience, gained knowledge in the medical world, acquired listening skills and I figured out what compassion really means. I am truly blessed to be a part of this organization and to work with and love the folks we serve.
~Medical Support Staff
I consider it a privilege to serve our clients and families by providing them information, guidance and confidence to meet goals that are important to them. The very essence of my job and personal satisfaction is in seeing those we serve, happy, achieving goals, learning new skills, and being content. I enjoy working with a team of professionals with the common goal to serve and make sure that our clients are always number one and always come first. I am thankful that I am afforded this opportunity to serve my community.
~Chris – Case Managers
My favorite part about being a Case Manager is building relationships with clients in order to help empower them with the right tools, people, and resources to reach their goals and live a life that is meaningful to them. I am especially excited when I get to see the clients I work for learning new skills that help them to achieve greater independence, give them a sense of pride, and allow them to contribute in new ways.
