D.J.’s STORY; A Testimonial from Mom.
The wonderful people at Worcester Youth & Family Counseling Services has been such a positive asset to my son, DJ. He is 25 years old and legally blind, which had only occurred in the past 2 years of his life. Having lived here in the Ocean City area for about a year now, we really needed some guidance. We were referred to this great organization, WYFCS, by multiple people in the community. My son was looking to locate a part time job with his recent disability, and not sure where to turn.
WYFCS; Family Connections sat down with him, navigated and offered many additional resources than we’d even considered available. For instance, they connected us with an organization that sent a representative to our home to educate D.J. about new software allowing “zoom text” in a larger font on his computer. They also suggested the possibility of D.J. attending college to pursue a career. This was something he and I had completely given up on, due to his recent disability. However, they provided all the resources for this dream to come to fruition. Soon, he will begin his studies at Wor-Wic Community College.
My testimony is, these are some of the most caring, patient, understanding and resourceful people we’ve had the joy to know here on the Eastern Shore. Thank you to everyone at Worcester Youth & Family. Your organization has truly made a difference in my son’s life!
