Disabled Woman Finds Belonging At Special Movie Theater
The Prospector Theater, located in Ridgefield CT employs disabled adults to give them meaningful work and experience. In an effort to shine a light on special employees, they launched a new series of videos profiling these ‘Prospects.’ This week we meet the incredible coach that helps these Prospect’s learn, grow and shine.
For Wendy, working at the theater has changed her life. By getting training and new opportunities she has experienced joy in different ways. She works in the cafe and that allows her to interact with customers; which fulfills a social need. By working with people like herself she feels a part of something greater.
"Wendy feels valued. Wendy feels like a contributing part of society," says her mom.
