Suhay has accepted a living wage job with a respected local business learning to operate a wide range of new equipment.
Angel came to Baker seeking two homes. He needed a personal residence beyond the church shelter where he was residing and a work home where he could rebuild his career. Having lost jobs as a machine operator and sanitation worker due to personal challenges and lack of reliable transportation, Angel came to Baker because of the support and understanding we offer adults navigating tough transitions. Baker assisted Angel in finding an apartment within walking distance and immediately put his skills in shipping and receiving to use in our Kensington warehouse operation. “On my first day at Baker, people treated me great. They gave me a chance.”– Angel
Jimmy loves machines. As a young adult on the autism spectrum, Jimmy has worked with machines in past jobs, but at Baker he is really able to pursue his passion.
Jimmy calls machines his “mechanical monsters” and especially enjoys using the shrink wrap machine to package items for customers. He likes Baker because the staff are aware of each person’s interests and abilities and everyone works together to get the job done.
