CareLink’s STAR Region currently operates 6 residential homes throughout Montgomery and Chester Counties, with the anticipation of opening 2 new homes before the end of 2016. On June 9th, we celebrated the one year anniversary for our newest program, Peck Road in Downingtown. One of the overall goals of our residential programs is to increase individual’s social capital by promoting rehabilitation and development through community integration. Activities and skill building are central to supporting individuals in their successful integration into their community.
Meet STAR Resident Anthony Rodriquez
Anthony Rodriquez, one of the gentlemen who lives at the Peck Road residence, has been in services since October of 2005. Anthony initially lived at another CareLink residence; however once he saw the property at Peck Rd, he instantly fell in love with it and requested to relocate, which he did. One of Anthony’s goals was to obtain competitive employment. Through his ongoing perseverance, dedication to working toward his dream, and encouragement from his team, his dream came true. Anthony was offered a position at a local retail store in Exton. This October Anthony will mark his one year anniversary of employment with the company. Anthony is very proud of his success. He is not only an outstanding member of his community, but a positive role model and leader to his housemates. Anthony continues to look forward to fulfilling the rest of his hopes and dreams and one day hopes to graduate from the STAR program and move on to a new chapter in his life. Congratulations on a job well done Anthony! We are so very proud of your success.
