Crystal DeJesus

# of Years with The Arc NCR: 2.44 Years

Nominated by: Jeanne Beaman

Here are the Highlights from Crystal’s nomination:

Advocating for Supported Individuals

Crystal works very hard in partnering with DDA on behalf of The Arc NCR and the individuals we support. She partners to ensure people we support are eligible to receive the supports needed to live a successful and independent life.  For example, there have been a lot of outstanding items that had not been approved for funding that supported individuals wanted and needed. Crystal worked very hard and consistently to have those items cleared up so that the agency could best support them.

Displaying Leadership

Crystal worked tirelessly to secure funding to provide awake overnight shifts, unfunded hours, and other service areas that were needed for people supported by The Arc NCR.  She took the initiative to research, contact the proper people to get funding authorized, and submitted all proper documentation.  All her efforts allowed the agency to accurately capture necessary and critical funds and most importantly for the individuals we support to get the services they so much deserve.
