John Nye, the Job Developer for our Transitional Employment Program, shared this recent experience with our staff.  Our work in the community is being noticed:

 

I would like to take a moment to tell you about a recent experience our Transitional Employment Teams had while out in the community last week. This experience demonstrates how our employees and the community benefit from Indian Creek Foundation and its programs.To celebrate the season’s holidays and the anticipated arrival of spring, our Transitional Employment Site Supervisors (Erica & Candace) planned a real life experience for their employees to exercise the skills that they have been working on over the last few months. Erica and Candace worked with Activities Specialist (Elaine) to organize a breakfast outing to Zoto’s Diner and a trip to Happy Tymes Amusement Park.
 
On Friday April 3, 2015, after completing their scheduled work, both teams went to Zoto’s Diner for breakfast. Each employee ordered and purchased their breakfast independently. Zoto’s Diner was very busy, it was Good Friday and they were short staffed. After we finished breakfast, our waitress approached me and stated how impressed she was with our employees. The waitress said our employees were patient, polite, and engaged with each other in a meaningful way.  She did not realize that organizations such as Indian Creek Foundation, and specifically our Transitional Employment Program, existed. She was happy to see our employees enjoying real life experiences and was relieved to learn about the different services that Indian Creek Foundation has to offer the community.
 
The TEP Teams proceeded to Happy Tymes. When we arrived, I introduced myself to the manager. He commented on how he enjoyed working with Elaine and the staff of Indian Creek Foundation. He and his team were very helpful to all of our employees. After playing the games, each employee turned in their tickets to purchase gifts or candy. One of our employees used her tickets to purchased gifts for her niece who recently had dental surgery. She was concerned about her niece’s recovery and looking forward to seeing her during the holiday weekend.

This real life experience is a prime example of how Indian Creek Foundation continues to break down barriers and empower the individuals it serves. I’d like to thank our employees, the waitress, the Happy Tymes staff, and everyone involved for their contribution to the success of Indian Creek Foundation’s Programs.
 
Lydia, Candace, Erica and I are proud of our employees and all of their accomplishments. 
 
Sincerely,
John Nye
