After previously living in group homes, Jin moved into Greater Opportunities’ Cortez Apartments Semi-Independent Living Program in May of this year. This is his first time living independently. He attends the daily on-site classes, which include, Budgeting, Housekeeping, Health and Safety, Anger Management, Sexuality, Cooking, and Nutrition. Jin’s favorite class is the Cooking class. He also, enjoys the social events.
During the day, Jin attends Access Community Day Program. While at the day program, he enjoys outside activities. He also visits his parents nearly every day. When Jin is at home he enjoys cooking, listening to music, and playing video games. Jin is currently looking for a job and is looking forward to working. He is currently trying to save money to buy a laptop. He would also like to learn to drive. We are very proud of Jin’s motivation to be fully independent. He is a joy to have at Cortez.
