Recreation Specialist from our Community Homes for Opportunity Program
Kaeley’s advice/inspiration for others
It’s okay to feel down today, and perhaps even tomorrow. But always remember that you are a champion. You are amazing—never forget that. Don’t doubt your accomplishments. You succeeded because you worked hard for it. You are here because you deserve to be.
Kaeley’s favourite memory at CMHA
I had the amazing opportunity to experience the CMHA client/staff camping trip. Even though I didn’t stay overnight, I was involved in the planning process and preparation and was there each day. I was a co-facilitator for ladder ball and tie-dye, which was a big hit! It was such a great feeling being in a new and fun environment with clients and colleagues.
Why Kaeley enjoys working at CMHA
There are many reasons why I love working at CMHA! Here are a few:
- I feel a sense of belonging that I have never felt during a career before.
- The incredible support I receive from my colleagues.
- I love working closely with individuals who need support.
- CMHA has a wonderful staff and client events.
