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.

ACI: How long have you been with Ability Counts?
Leticia Gutierrez: I’ve worked at Ability Counts for 12 years.
ACI: What got you interested in this field of work?
Leticia Gutierrez: I have a cousin and a baby brother with a developmental disability. They’ve inspired me to do more ..to spread the love.
ACI: What’s it like working with people that have disabilities?
Leticia Gutierrez: I love it! They are the most amazing people ever. They are hard working, loyal, respectful, reliable and lovable people. More than I can say about most “Normal” people. My consumers give me strength to keep throwing punches. 🙂
ACI: What are your hobbies and things to do outside of work?
Leticia Gutierrez: I LOVE to shop ..for myself, my family and my friends. I’m open for anything really. I went fishing for the first time a few weeks ago and I did very good. I’m ready for more future adventures. Life is too short and I have places to go, things to do and people to meet. 🙂
