This month, the award was presented to Debbie Grillo, who is a Residential Counselor II at the Garden Place Personal Care Alternative home.

Debbie was nominated by her Site Supervisor, who wrote:

I would like to nominate Debbie Grillo for the Super Hero of the Month. On many occasions, I have observed Debbie going above and beyond what is required of her to improve the environment at Garden Place. She needs very little direction and is working hard to support her co-workers and clients each day. This past Sunday, we had a sick call-off and Debbie immediately offered to work the majority of the shift.  When I came in about 5 hours into her shift, Debbie was outside with one of the ladies pulling weeds in front of the house. The entire house was clean, all duties were done, and all clients seemed content. Most importantly, she did all of this with a smile.  Additionally, even though Debbie is a newer staff, she has shown a real dedication to the house and puts extra effort into every single shift she works.  She has shown wonderful drive and initiative.  

If you see Debbie around, please congratulate her on being our Super Hero of the Month!
