“I love working on my social skills and job skills at the academy. I just got a job. I am waiting to hear back to see when I start. I’m also teach classes in the academy. A health class to all my friends. I have a lot of friendships. I love it here!”Jackie
“Tom had a few jobs, but they never really worked out. As a parent, it’s heartbreaking. Aspire trained our son in the environment. When I went to his graduation party, I was just floored. He was so happy. We couldn’t have been more proud. We can’t say enough about this program.”Linda and Rick
