Employer Testimonial

“Gloria has brought a lot of happiness to our childcare center.  The parents, employees and kids love seeing her.  Gloria cleans the toys to help keep the children from spreading germs.  She is always friendly to the kids and happy to be here.  I would recommend hiring a person with a disability if they are able to meet the job requirements.  I would and have recommended working with Village Community Services, because my experience has been great.  It is good for the children and employees to understand people with disabilities are just like the rest of us.  My favorite thing about having Gloria as an employee is how much she enjoys it.  Gloria takes pride in the job she does and always comes with a big hug and smile.”      –Bev Curtis, Our Saviour’s Daycare
