My Story: Michael

Through rounds of misdiagnosis, years in institutions, and mis-prescribed medications, Michael has continued to inspire those around him with his drive for independence. No longer needing daily supports to monitor his work, Michael was hired by Goodwill of Western and Northern Connecticut to work independently as a custodial team member on the Goodwill Good & Clean Crew.
