Meet Ward

Meet Ward. Ward volunteers every week at Springfield Day Habilitation Program where he leads Story Time. “I’m always very careful to make sure [the individuals] understand what is going on in the story. I get feedback from them either verbally or they express themselves with their hands. I don’t see a lot of people who aren’t involved, they’re all involved one way or another. They express themselves in one way or another,” he says. “I think they know that the person reading to them cares about them learning something and hearing something, that there’s somebody there who’s willing to share some time with them.” Ward is a recent retiree, who has spent the last ten years working with people who have disabilities, from mentoring children with autism to leading a sheltered workshop in Columbia, MD. Ward says, “I’m very impressed with these people and the way they work with the individuals. I’ve never heard or seen any negativity from the staff. The program flows. I’m impressed to see how well it works and how well the clients are taken care of here.”
