Experiences with ProAct

ProAct has an amazing staff of kind, compassionate and capable people. I really cannot express how much we appreciate this program.

Since independent work is not possible for her, she enjoys the fact that she gets out in the community the three days she attends.

“I say come out and apply. There’s so much that needs to be done here. Working with these people is enjoyable, it’s rewarding, and it’s not a stressful situation. I just enjoy working with them,” Bob F.

Though it’s difficult for her to put it into words, participant Carmen Strom appreciates the opportunities at ProAct, explains her father, Bill. “That’s a pretty big thing for her,” he said.  Her mother has seen the difference ProAct makes.  “I can’t say enough about the staff people who work here … to devote themselves to a program like this … I’m very grateful,” said Sara, wiping her tears.
