“Since 1998 Larry has been living his dream and often says “My home is my castle”. Connections For Life became one of Larry’s strong advocates for living in his own home.

Serving as a Direct Support Professional has brought me a profound sense of unity with our community. Each professional relationship I forge with our clients deepens my worldview, nurturing a stronger sense of empathy and insight. My commitment to this work goes beyond financial incentives; it’s cemented in the desire to make a meaningful impact on the lives we touch, especially in the times when economic pressures are felt by all.
The true value I’ve discovered in this role is the irreplaceable human connection – the shared achievements, the personal growth, and the resilience we cultivate together. It is the heartfelt experiences, the small victories, and the collective journey that continually renews my passion for this work. – James
