Meet one of our many clients that your donation can assist in obtaining the training they deserve. Mark is a 47 year old single father of two who was in a car accident that left him as a quadriplegic.
Mark is trying to obtain training to start a new career he can excel in and make money to put his 25-year-old daughter through school, and help his 12-year-old son who is hard of hearing get the services he requires to gain fulfilling education and life skills. When asked how the Broadcast Training Program and Connect 4 Life help him, Mark said, “After the accident I suffered from severe depression and anxiety, I didn’t’ go out or socialize. During that time, I isolated myself from friends, family, and the life I knew before.
I also stayed away from meeting new people. I have been paralyzed for 20 years and haven’t worked since the accident. However, one day I came across the Connect 4 Life pamphlet while attending Toronto Rehab and found the courage to apply myself to the working world once again. Once I began my journey with Connect 4 Life, I realized the possibility of gaining autonomy and finding a purpose again.“
