Success Stories

The O.T.C. is proud to highlight just a few of the countless success stories we’ve had over the years. We’re so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with some amazing adults who are able to overcome fear and discouragement and flourish in their success with O.T.C.. We work with hundreds of adults with disabilities that come from all kinds of backgrounds, each with their own unique story and struggle, and we are so proud to share some of their success stories with you here.

In this section you’ll meet Mark, an eager opportunist who, in his search for more challenging work, finally discovered the O.T.C. and was able to finally find his dream job in a supportive environment that fosters learning and accomplishments. You’ll also meet DeQuan, a young man who loves computer animation but whose visual impairment prevented him from finding gainful employment. With the help of O.T.C., DeQuan was trained in the janitorial program and his supervisor helped tailor DeQuan’s routine responsibilities so he could work with his impairment and achieve the success he so greatly desired.

We’d also like to share Diane’s story. Like some of our other clients, Diane came to us later in life and was apprehensive about starting a new vocation as an adult. After 23 years with O.T.C., Diane has found her niche and loves her life and work.

Lastly, we’d like to introduce Willie, one of our favorite success stories. Willie had all but given up until the O.T.C. helped him find purpose and pride both in and out of the O.T.C. through his work in the Supported Employment Program.

Please take a moment to read a few of our success stories. We’re so proud of our clients and are excited to share their accomplishments with you.
