Every day when I come to work, I look forward to improving people’s lives with a day plan, physical and emotional support, and listening to their needs. I’m able to do what I love, while also supporting others. It’s important to work for people that care about you. ILHS is a respectful work environment filled with friendly people. The staff is always looking for innovative ways to make it a more enjoyable workspace for everyone.
