A Community Living Story

Jasmine has been a part of The Arc NCR family for many years. Initially, she was a foster care child in the agency’s Treatment Foster Care program. After aging out of the program, it was time for Jasmine to take steps in the adult world, originally receiving adult supports through another provider. After a while, Jasmine decided to take a leap of faith and transferred back to The Arc NCR to join the Community Living program. It was a courageous move, but her risk paid off, feeling right at home in her new house. Her new roommates, Carla, and Betty, welcomed her with open arms and in Jasmine’s words, have already become “besties.”

Jasmine has adjusted very well to her new home and has even joined the Discovery group in the agency’s Employment Services program. She is learning new employment skills and learning what positions may best fit her as part of her next steps to finding employment. Jasmine is meeting admirable goals already and continues to be positive and outgoing in her pursuit of happiness.
