Yitzchokm is an individual was developmentally disabled (a genetic disorder) and came from a family low on the economic level and always wanted to work. He had an extremely shy personality, hard for him to maintain eye contact. Yitzchak is in HASC Center’s E-SEMP program which is an acronym for Enhanced Supported Employment Program– that means that HASC Center identifies a suitable job for the consumer and provide them with intensive job supports (a job coach is there the entire time). HASC Center found a job for Yitzchok in Pomegranate packaging candies (upstairs in Pomegranate). After several months (of having a coach with him all the time) he expressed interest in working ‘where the action is’. He was put to work as a bagger (by the registers) three days a week. Then it became four days and then five days. He is a totally changed person. This is a just one example of HASC's many success stories.
