"I love my job at Mains’l because I get to help people learn and grow and help them become successful. I am able to watch them grow, and that in itself is incredibly rewarding. Working at Mains'l, I have really learned a lot about myself. I found that helping people is something I would like to do for the rest of my life. What makes me want to go to work every day is the fact that I get to be there for the people I work with, providing support so they can reach their hopes and dreams. I am proud to be a part of a team that literally changes lives. Mains'l is the best place I have ever worked. They care about not only the people we support, but their employees as well. I am beyond grateful to be a part of Mains'l."

"The people I support and everyone I work with - I enjoy them all. I have children and I know that Mains’l is willing to work with me if I need it. I like the fact that I get to meet so many different people, as a float, which allows flexibility of working in a variety of locations."

"My passion is to help people, support them, and see them grow and I have found that purpose through a job at Mains’l for nearly 11 years. I have watched one person in particular grow so much. Where she once didn’t talk, she’s now talking all the time. I believe that these changes come from the fact that nobody gave up on her and the caring support she received."
