To Whom It May Concern, Re: Dave I had the pleasure to get to know and work with Dave when he served as a FamilyHome Provider in the FamilyHome Program at Extend-A-Family. In this role, Dave welcomed a man with a developmental disability to live with him and his daughter, in their home. They shared their lives, and Dave offered emotional and personal support to this man. He also assisted with more practical matters, including day to day planning, and money management. I observed Dave with the person he supported on regular and numerous occasions. Dave is a caring, honest and gentle person. He assumes people are capable, and provides opportunities for people to reach their potential. Dave is a strong advocate, and dedicated to rights of equality and inclusion for all people. Dave brought many attributes and skills to our working relationship. He is genuine, clear, and honest in his communication. He will offer his views and thoughts on matters, even when they differ from the views of others, and he does so in a very respectful manner that encourages dialogue. Dave is very reliable, and he is a team player. Dave is a very active person in the community. He is involved with advocacy groups, non-profit organizations, and arts and culture. He enjoys meeting others, and he is very sociable. In summary, my experience working alongside Dave was a very positive one. If you would like to contact me directly, please feel free to call or write. Sincerely, Erin FamilyHome Coordinator
