Keith Richardson – Indiana – ANCOR Leadership Category Winner
Keith is one of our stars, and ResCare Residential Services in Indianapolis counts on him to train and mentor many of our new employees.
He’s always available to assist and volunteer. Keith helps plan the bingo nights, painting parties and movie nights for all the clients we support.
Keith also helps his co-workers learn his tips for success with planning the monthly activities. When new staff members join ResCare Indianapolis, Keith provides them with strategies and methods to be successful. He supports and mentors them along the way.
With Keith’s support, one client overcame behavioral challenges that prevented him from participating in the Special Olympics. Now that client participates every year. Another client wanted to find a job in the community. Keith took this client out to volunteer several days a week, which showed the person’s willingness and readiness to start working. After six months of volunteering, the individual applied for employment. Because of Keith’s perseverance, the client now works three days a week and rides the bus to and from work independently.
Everyone who’s had the opportunity to meet Keith and see the passion he has for those we support comes away wanting to better themselves because of him.
Thank you, Keith, for helping people ResCare supports in Indianapolis to live their best life.
