About Us

"The love I have today for this field started years back in my home country of Liberia, West Africa. My grandfather had special needs and at the age of 10, I started taking care of him. I would bring him water, help bathe him, and bought him clothes. People with disabilities are often forgotten and neglected in Africa. With this experience as a young child, working with individuals with disabilities has become my true life's passion. Coming to the United States and working at The Phoenix Residence has been very rewarding for me. I consider the people I serve as my family. During my off days, I drive to work to spend time talking and playing games with them. I love my job and enjoy helping people meet their life goals."
