Congratulations! – Fellowship Place’s Annual Career Development Awards

Fellowship Place’s annual Career Development Awards celebration was held on June 11.  About 50 clients from the agency’s Supported Education, Supported Employment, and Food Service Training programs were recognized for achievements ranging from starting and successfully completing a certificate program, returning to college, finding employment, and volunteering at local non-profit agencies.  Award recipients spoke about the importance of resilience, setting goals, and overcoming obstacles that come along every day with the help of counselors, peers, and family.

Each year Fellowship Place’s Career Development office facilitates pathways to employment and greater independence for more than 200 individuals living with a serious mental illness.
