Well, it looks that way, anyway. So, I had a spur-of-the-moment interview today with a company called Bridges Community Support Services. It went really well, and at the end of the conversation, the CEO/owner offered me a job as a Community Support Worker. Basically, I’ll be going into mentally and physically disabled people’s homes to make sure that they’re safe, healthy, organized, and successful. So far, the position sounds nearly perfect (except for a small pay cut)….but at this point, just about anything would be better than DYS. The guy I met with today was really nice and seems genuinely interested in putting people who want to make a difference into jobs where they can do so. There’s also a pretty good chance of advancement pretty quickly, which is also a huge improvement over where I am now. So, I’ll be starting as soon as I have a starting date and can give my notice at Hillsboro Treatment Center. Let the questions begin…

  1. Congratulations! I surely hope all goes well! Sounds like an interesting organization. One would assume that most of the clients you’ll be working with will actually “want” help – which could make for good interactions.

  2. Yay yay yay! Congrats Brookie! If you have any questions about those sorts of jobs or maybe even that particular organization, feel free to ask my mom. What a great way to start off the New Year!
