Never Too Late

My job as Service Coordinator exposes me to all sorts of breakthroughs.  My property serves the low-income elderly and disabled.  These are folks who likely did not have many opportunities for personal growth early in life, or for whatever reason find themselves at a disadvantage in their current life.  Previously, I had only served as…
