The Ability Center was honored to receive a check from Noah Martinez, former Ability Center consumer. The gift of $1,000 was raised by Noah to donate in memory of late Ability Center staff member, Dennis Mussery. Dennis and Noah began working on independent living skills in November 2012. Building on employment capabilities and gaining valuable experience, Noah soon landed his first job after connecting with Dennis.
He motivated Noah to pursue his passion of film making. The pair were even granted behind-the-scenes access to the set of Draft Day, meeting stars Jennifer Garner and Kevin Costner.
Families of Noah and Dennis were on hand during the check presentation and sharing of memories.
Noah's contribution will help fund the recreational component of The Ability Center's Next Steps Summer Program.
