Testimonials

Shine has made a huge improvement in Jason’s life. He tells me he has friends he loves the outings and camps. Jason went above the line in his assessment at the botanic gardens for the first time in years thanks to the support workers. Jason used to run away from the door when a support worker arrived, now with Shine, he answers the door.
