Kate was diagnosed at an early age with ADD, ADHD and a mild intellectual disability.
Before coming to Ability Building Center in 1998, she had problems staying focused on everyday tasks. Being able to hold down a job in the community seemed like a distant dream.
With the help of ABC’s Supported Employment Program at Woodland Industries in Caledonia, Kate proudly works full-time for Kwik Trip. “I don’t know what I would have done without ABC,” Kate says. “I hate to think— I might have been homeless, or in prison, even. My work and supervisors provide the structure I need to succeed every day.”
