"My individual work study program in high school was working with children and adults with multiple handicaps and disabilities. It opened my eyes to possibilities that I never expected to see and inspired me to always want to be part of learning how to move forward and overcome barriers, both for myself and others. That journey and passion for helping others continues here at CAST."
