Nathan lives with an intellectual disability and a heart condition. Initially, he struggled to learn appropriate workplace behavior, which brought him to Easterseals serving Greater Cincinnati.
The mentoring he received through Easterseals’ workforce development inspired him to put customers first and establish a good work ethic.
“It made me a different person,” said Nathan. “Easterseals provided me strength and how to improve your skills in a job and even out in the community.”
The goal at Easterseals is for those being served to find independence and success through employment. That is exactly what Nathan did. Over two years ago, he became employed at Walmart is excited to report that he has been promoted twice, from janitorial service to a sales associate.
Nathan is forever a friend of Easterseals and often helps promote the workforce development programs that empower people with disabilities, local veterans and people facing economic disadvantages.
