Employee of the Month
SDC would like to congratulate Akeem Mohammed and thank him for his outstanding performance as a Direct Support Professional at Striving on Strength Day Program.
Akeem joined SDC’s day program in the summer of 2014 and took over what had been a very challenging prevocational site, which requires collaboration with a partnered agency. Akeem brought enthusiasm, patience, creative ideas and stability to this site. He has received consistent praise from the partnered administration who has been impressed with how well he interacts with the individuals and encourages their growth and independence. Akeem has assumed full responsibility for this program.
The SOS day program has been consistently short staffed and short vehicles. On a daily basis, Akeem has called or texted as soon as he realized the impact on the program to make suggestions and readily volunteer to assist whenever possible. His suggestions and flexibility have been a great help at a very difficult time.
Akeem has a gentle, but firm approach when working with individuals. He is patient, caring and considerate of their needs, abilities, and challenges, and he is creative in finding ways to help them grow and prosper.
Akeem is a team player, willing to help out whenever and wherever needed. He is always willing to lend a hand to a co-worker, is timely and accurate with his documentation and he diligently works to assist the individuals meet their goals and serve and the program as a whole.
SDC’s Striving on Strength Day Program is proud to have Akeem on our team and look forward to all of the possibilities the future brings!!
