I wanted to write about the terrific job CEFA did in finding our daughter employment. From the 1st day we met to discuss her desire to find a job, I knew they were totally dedicated to helping their consumers find a job in the community, and would go above and beyond in accomplishing this goal. They spent time with our daughter in finding out where she would like to work, what her skills were, helping her with her resume, training on how to do a good interview, etc. Shortly thereafter they made arrangements with her to interview for a job at Market District. She got the job and she loves her job duties. She has learned so much, thanks to her job coaches Dominic and Andrew. They were amazing...They were there for her during her work schedule until they felt comfortable that she could handle the responsibilities herself. I have only good feedback from our daughter's co-workers and her supervisor (s) at Market District. This job has given our daughter self confidence, a sense of responsibility, community inclusion, self worthiness and she loves the fact she gets a paycheck so she can afford to live independently. I can't thank CEFA enough for the absolutely great job they and their staff have done to help our daughter!

As someone who has worked with individuals with disabilities for over five years, I can honestly say that my time spent as a job coach for CEFA has been amazing. The managing director of our company truly cares deeply and is passionate about helping those with disabilities live up to their full potential. I am grateful to work for this company and love spending my time working in the community. The work is rewarding and our staff goes above and beyond expectations, from working long hours to help set up interviews, coaching the individual on skills and proper etiquette necessary to land a job, to providing constant and consistent on the job support, I take great pride in my work and love being someone that these individuals and their families can rely on. I would recommend CEFA for any individual who is truly looking for a role in community employment as we constantly work our hardest to help break down barriers.

We have worked with CEFA for the past year and have been so happy with the results. Bob and his team of job coaches have been great partners. The word that best describes CEFA is "caring". They are special people and it is a special organization!
