Macrina Perron, ODSP employment service provider, Yes Employment: We offer a wide range of services, one of which being ODSP Employment Supports.

Michael — when he came to me, he was looking for competitive employment with Galaxy Cinemas.

We developed a cover letter, we developed a resume. I tested his handshake.

But it wasn’t long after that he started with the training, that everyone saw that he really had a passion and that passion carried over.

And the community knows who he is. He’s very, very loved in his position.

And I think that everyone involved was pleasantly surprised with how Michael rose to the challenge of becoming a competitive employee.

Michael Culham, Cast member, Galaxy Cinemas: My job is cleaning and sweeping lobbies and ripping tickets.

Macrina is always kind and loving and helpful. She told me that I was special at what I do. And that I could do my job well.

And Terry’s always been good to me. He’s a great boss. He took time to train me and help me to know what to do.

Terry inspired me to try new things. And I’m pleased to call him my friend.

Macrina: Between Michael’s determination and his positive attitude and his infectious smile, and the support of what I feel is a really great program, Michael’s now a paid employee. And he’s happy, and he’s a part of his community, and people love him. And he loves being a part of the team.
