We believe that OTB is a place of personal and professional growth for each person involved in our program, including our staff. We believe everyone can meet their goals and reach their greatest potential. The stories from our staff are both heartwarming and inspiring!

OTB has made me soft. It has opened my heart and made me have so much joy and overflowing with so much love I didn’t know was possible. You form special relationships with people here; coworkers, families and participants, and that is a feeling that can never be replaced. It is a job that you enjoy going to. Yes, there are hard and stressful days, but just having a participant saying “Hi, Emmy!” when they first see you in the morning makes it all worthwhile. We change lives here. We are the most important people in some of their lives, and that is a feeling that is indescribable. There is no question OTB has made me a better person and has changed my life.

My experience at OTB has been…monumental. OTB as a whole has really brought about a positive change in myself; inside those OTB walls, and definitely outside. The support that is given to staff is reflected and shown in turn by group facilitators working with group participants. I’ve worked with a few companies over the years, in a couple different states, and can honestly say that OTB is at the top of the “I genuinely care about your growth and independence” list for everyone, from the participants to the staff and administration, positivity and growth is in abundance.
