November 2, 2017

Impact Stories

Justin has been working at HeartShare’s Cuomo First Step Pre-School in Richmond Hill, Queens. “I have a lot of different goals,” said Justin, who reports sharply at noon to deliver meals to HeartShare pre-schoolers. During his shift, Justin counts off the hot lunches, milk cartons, fruit and salads for each classroom. HeartShare’s Pre-Vocational and Employment Programs help people like Justin explore their interests and find a position that’s right for them. “I’m not going to be here forever,” said Justin with a smile. “I’m going to work towards getting into retail and earning even more. This is just the beginning.”
