George

George has worked in the social service field for over 7 years and at Inspiration Corporation for over 5 of those years. George began his career at Inspiration as a part-time Lead Milieu Manager in 2008, in this capacity he was in charge of overseeing all meals, behaviors during meals, and proper staffing of the milieu. Within one year’s time George was promoted to full time status as a Supportive Services Coordinator taking on the added responsibilities of the Art for All and Healthy Living Programs, both of which were designed to help bridge the gap of accessibility for participants to services that may not be available to them due to their income. Amenities such as baseball, basketball, hockey games, museums, theater, health fares, financial planning councilors, chiropractic, and regular health care just to name a few. In 2013, George was once again promoted to Career Specialist where he meets with participants to help fulfill their career and educational aspirations. Through one-on-one exploration participants discover their career options while also being provided resume and cover letter writing assistance and interviewing skills.
