Demonstrating The Arc NCR’s Mission
Caterina supports the ladies at the house she works in by giving them choices in their lives and supporting them beyond measure. She has been working with them on financial skills to help them acquire some new independence.
Caterina demonstrates the mission of The Arc NCR by continuing to use Informed Decision Making and Skills System tools in supporting people who struggle in managing their emotions in healthy ways and making decisions that move them toward their goals. She encourages activities in keeping the individuals she supports busy and supports them in managing stress.
Caterina and her co-worker, Jane, displayed leadership in a medical crisis for one of the individuals supported at The Arc NCR. They worked together and provided CPR for this individual while the other called 911. They both took complete control of the situation and this resulted in a positive outcome.
