Neva Noland lived at the Enchanted Rainbow Residential care facility and enjoyed many outings with her group home. She started working at Ability Counts on January 11,1999, completing 19 years of employment. She worked in both Supported Employment and the Work Activity programs. She worked at the Central building, Corona and Riverside.
She loved working, especially boxing garment hangers. She also did well in the recent recycle contracts. Neva was very social and friendly, loved by all. She attended Friendly Stars social club every Friday night. She also belonged to a bowling league and was a good bowler. She enjoyed attending events held by ACI.
We were told by her Care Provider, while she was hospitalized, that she kept telling him she wanted to go back to work.
Neva Noland, a special lady, she enjoyed life.
She will be missed.

Way to go Amika and Crew!
One of ACI’s many jobs in the community is collecting recycled cardboard from Riverside City Hall. Job Coach, Amika Luebrun and her crew go to all seven floors and rotate the full bins with empty bins.
City Hall staff has reported that Amika’s crew is very hardworking and respectful towards others. They never leave a mess, and they’re always in a good mood.

Jessica Rodriquez is an excellent employee. She has demonstrated significant progress at the WAP program. Jessica started off removing sizers, and progressed to filling buckets off the conveyor belt, successfully filling up to x50 buckets daily.
She demonstrated interest in boxing top hangers and was given the chance to learn how to box and has successfully learned how to box top hangers, boxing around x30 boxes daily. Not only is she a good example of achievement, but an excellent worker. She is always willing to help out and it motivated to learn new things.
I’m so proud of her.
