In organizations like Ability Beyond, it is commonly understood and agreed that Direct Support Professionals are the true assets. To the Parkes Family, Leon Guerrero is a treasure! Since our son came to Ability Beyond, Leon has been the guiding force to Eric’s initial acclimation, ongoing independence and overall success.
In Ability’s residential program, Leon was Eric’s “go to” provider and companion giving Eric the space to explore both his limits and potential. Since Leon joined Ability’s Day Program staff a few years ago, Eric has continued his relationship with Leon and benefited from his guidance and direction, optimizing relationships with his peers and exploring new pursuits.
We are so fortunate to have Leon in our lives and so proud of his recognition of this National Direct Support Professional award. Thanks for this opportunity to voice our support and CONGRATULATIONS LEON!
