Meet Walter! In a recent interview we had with him, he described himself as a hard worker, very punctual, and someone who “thinks like a kid.” A few of Walter’s favorite things include movie trivia, digital art (anime characters), and spending time with his family. He also loves Halloween, making his own unique costume each year!
Walter, now 31 years old, started coming to the Center when he was 20 and immediately found a place where he could grow and expand his horizons. He started out in one of our work training programs packaging products. But, after some time at the Center, Walter had a very important experience. As he described it, “a magical moment happened when Patty Isola called me to offer me a job with Crew 2 U.” Today, eleven years later, Walter works on a Palm Beach Habilitation CREW 2 U janitorial team. He has a community of friends, staff who support him in his job, and meaningful employment that increases his quality of life.
Walter is just one example of the many people with disabilities in Palm Beach County who have been profoundly and positively impacted by the Palm Beach Habilitation Center.
