Abilities United has thousands of participants and each one of them has an important story to tell including Jessica, who doesn’t have a spare moment. Between volunteer commitments, her active social life and her Independent Living Skills work at Abilities United, she has a full schedule.
For several years Jessica has been a volunteer the San Jose Blind Center. She assists others and does office work. At the BOK Horse Ranch Jessica gardens, cares for the horses, and does a variety of other tasks. One of Jessica’s biggest accomplishments is her job as a counselor in training at Via West. Jess works with the counselors and the children at the camp. “It makes me feel good to help others,” she says proudly.
Jessica is a very welcome addition to the camp and she loves her work. Another contribution Jessica makes is her regular donation to Locks of Love. She graciously gives her hair to others. Jessica is definitely making a difference in the world one day
at a time.
