STEPHEN’S STORY

Since moving from his family home into Hutton St in October 2009, we have watched him flourish.

Far from holding him back, Stephen approached his everyday challenges with determination and pride. His goals were to achieve employment, participate in his community and create a pathway to independence. Stephen uncovered his confidence by chasing these dreams and he has inspired us all.

Stephen plays an active part in his community with assistance from Guide Dogs NSW/ACT, our Finding Yellow support workers and the Endeavour Group He participates in activities and events and proactively uses Public Transport. His dream of getting his first job is now a reality and now he works four days a week, a commitment he is very passionate about.

Stephen has shown an outstanding commitment to independence at home and his life skills continue to grow every day. In fact, Stephen’s abilities have set him on a new path in his journey, one that will see him transition into independent living within the community. Congratulations Stephen!

Stephen’s family are so proud of what he has achieved and share that “he is a very different man to what he was when he first moved to Hutton St. It’s wonderful to see how happy and proud of himself he is!”

Stephen has truly encouraged us all to set and work hard to achieve our goals. Anything is possible!

Sharing the yellow moments of the clients is something that we take great pride in at Finding Yellow. It takes courage for the clients to overcome the challenges that they individually face and yet they continually surprise us with their willpower and achievements.
