North Star has been very special for me through out the years I’ve been here. They taught me how to be a better person by being helpful to people. I can relate to the staff and being supportive. Some of the jobs that I worked on are: Hangers, Phantom, O-ring, candyman, cardboard, phones, material handler, dishes, serve lunch, McKenna, news-letter, yellow caps, engineer products, I also worked at Hawkeye cleaning the yard, and working at Phantom, janitorial, skills, and safety jobs, milk run job. The staff here have been very supportive and helping me get a job out in the community. My behavior have been better since I came to North Star. Written By: David S.
