COMMUNITY MEMBER CELEBRATES 30 YEARS AT BROKERAGE
NEW HAVEN – When Laura Mintz landed a job at a major brokerage firm 30 years ago, she never expected to have such a lasting career or to rise from Gal Friday to running the mailroom.
But that was the Laura of 1980 who arrived at Chapel Haven in 1979, enrolled in the two-year REACH transitional program focused on independent living skills.
Students in Chapel Haven’s ASAT program were treated to a guided tour of the Yale Center for British Art on Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2010.
All staffers attended a professional development day at Chapel Haven on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2010, where Dr. Teresa Bolick, PhD, shared tips and strategies on how to help adults on the spectrum learn “competent” behavior for a variety of settings.
Tower One/Tower East originally published this story and photo in Towers Times about the good work of two of our students in the REACH and Bridge programs and the wonderful friendship they have developed with Towers volunteer Rubin “Ruby” Kertaineck. Many thanks to Marketing Director Rebecca Goodman-Olshansky for granting us permission to share the story.
