Unity Place presented its awards for July to deserving employees and also recognized a client who has made tremendous progress at Unity. The awards illustrate how the care and quality of Unity personnel put recovery within reach for clients.
Bridget Cowan was selected as employee of the month for her commitment to building up the new evening IOP and for the outreach she has done. She finds both her counseling and the outreach, something that is new to her, to be rewarding.
Carolyn was chosen as Unity’s staff person for July. She has done a fantastic job with the Community Unity Garden. Carolyn clearly has a green thumb, as the garden is teeming with tomatoes and squash, some of which are served as part of our lunches.
Arlene A. is Unity’s driver of the month. She has been with Unity for over two years and is a dedicated worker. Arlene does one of the longest runs we have, going all the way to Toms River and back every day. She ensures the clients enjoy the ride by putting oldies on and encouraging the riders to sing along, making the long drive to Toms River pass in a blink.
And Chong S. was named July’s client of the month due to being such a good helper to her friends in program. She started at Unity in December and throughout her time with us has been the first person to provide assistance to anyone in her track who needs it.
