"When Do I Get Paid?"

Debbie Creighton joined our day time crew last week, as a part-time dishwasher, helping Cherelle.   She is a member of the local chapter of The Arc, a national organization that helps people like Debbie live more meaningful lives within their communities.  Debbie will be working every Tuesday and Thursday morning.  She begins the day - after she clocks in - with a thorough sweep of the dining room, then she gets busy on the pot sink.  Gradually she will be doing more to help Cherelle, so that Cherelle can do more to help Kevin.

 Debbie is quite enthusiastic about her job. She has a very positive attitude, greeting everyone with a "Good Morning" and usually a query of some kind.  "What's your name?"  "What do you do?"  The first question I get is  "When do I get paid?"

Here is Debbie at the pot sink, under the watchful eyes of her job-coach DeeDee and our own Cherelle.

This week Kevin introduced Debbie to the job of peeling shrimp, and she happily helped Cherelle get that chore done in a timely fashion.
