The Coast Hillcrest received an Inclusive Employer award from Community Living British Columbia (CLBC) North Okanagan Shuswap Community Council.
We would like to recognize the Coast Hillcrest for their ongoing support and in working hard to help individuals find independent employment.
“When I first began working with Chuck, he was slated to have ongoing support. Through forward thinking and building capacity for new service participants we were able to successfully fade out of his job and volunteer placements. This was done gradually, and if you know Chuck, he is a very busy fella who wears many hats in his world of work” – Shannon Moorhead.
Chuck currently works at the Coast Hillcrest Hotel, Begbie Inspections, Revelstoke Property Services and does private yard work for one of the most amazing ladies in Revelstoke. He also volunteers at the Revelstoke Visual Art Center alongside his friend and mentor and also helps out at the Revelstoke Auxiliary Thrift Store. Most of his shifts range from 1-2 hours each week, he takes great pride in all of his work.
