Why Do You Love TURN?
In early June we posted a survey on Facebook asking the TURN community why they loved TURN. The following story is an anonymous response from that survey that captures how working at TURN can change lives.
"So this is going to sound bad but I used to be terrified of having kids with special needs. I just didn't know if I could handle it. But now that I work at TURN and I work with these amazing people every day I just can't imagine my life without them, and quite honestly I don't want to imagine a life where I never met the people that single-handedly changed my entire life for the better.
The night I realized how much I loved this job was a few months after I was hired & I was taking 4 or 5 clients home. We were listening to the radio & a song I knew came on so I started singing along. Well this encouraged the other staff in the van to sing, too, & before I knew it every single client in the car was singing, even the nonverbal ones, even though not one of them knew a single word to it. I just realized how much love I had for all of them & that really stuck with me. So thank you, TURN, for showing me that I'm capable of this kind of love for so many people. That's why I love you.
