Meet Ola, a Home Coordinator at BeConnected’s Hedgerow House in North Saanich. Ola began his career at BeConnected in April of 2020 as a community support worker, working in both of BeConnected’s children/youth and adult programs.
Ola demonstrated skill, caring, and compassion in his frontline role and also joined BeConnected’s Workforce Development Committee. Ola proved himself to be a wonderful asset to BeConnected and was soon, in January of 2021, promoted to Home Coordinator and tasked with the job of opening a brand new home, in the middle of a global pandemic!
Ola provides direct support services that ensure the individuals he serves are living full and meaningful lives, to the best of their abilities. He also provides leadership and supervision of the home and its team. Ola goes above and beyond in his support of the young men who call Hedgerow House home, and in ensuring his staff are trained and are following the protocols that keep everyone healthy and safe.
See what Ola has to say about making a difference:
"Everything you do has an influence, and you have to choose how big of an impact you want to have." So be diligent, courageous, and stay focused in all you do; this will positively create a different atmosphere in your team and the individuals you serve.
Ola exemplifies the essential qualities we look for at BeConnected: passion, purpose, and an excellent fit for our caring culture.
Thank you, Ola, we are so happy to have you on our team!
