Jefferson spaces opened my eyes. I really appreciate their work. They feed us, we can shower, and it is a nice place to stay. I can relax, not looking over my shoulder. Doctors are available. This place brings me joy.

What I enjoy most about working at Magdala is the everyday success I see clients achieve. I enjoy supporting clients in creating normalcy in their homes, and I enjoy being around coworkers who live to advocate on behalf of our clients.

I feel safe and I love my friends. I like to exercise, play games, and go on field trips with my friends at the day program.
