“Working with Aspire has been great for people like me that are having trouble saying ‘hi, here I am’. To have been given a chance at a job. Because of my disability, they were able to say, alright, here is a role he can fill that is very important.”Stephen, CBRE
“I had a very hard time finding a job. Aspire took my skills and wishes into account and helped me. I love that my new job is both physically and mentally stimulating. Now walking 20,000 steps daily!”Grace, Canteen
“Aspire has been life changing for Grace and myself. Before, it was a challenge to keep her from spiraling. Now that she’s going to a job she loves five days a week, I call her Miss Sunshine. Aspire really cares that she succeeds in her employment. I ask Grace daily how things were at work, and I get the same answer, ‘It was great!’”Barbara, Grace’s mom
“Aspire had me meet up for tips, what my rights were, set up this interview for me. Every single step of the way explaining to me what to expect. I am 24 years old and my title and position at The Bazaar is a logistical customer service agent. Now I’m looking to move up and try to make something for myself.”Manny, The Bazaar
