"Employing people with special needs is NO DIFFERENT to hiring someone who does not have special needs. It may take a bit more patience at first, but it is very rewarding"

When Mathew first came to Break Thru he was in a bit of trouble. He was depressed and couldn’t find a good place to live. The use of drugs made the situation even worse for Mathew. Now he's running his own business, off drugs and has a good place to live. Congrats Mathew!! :)
