Staff Stories

Steven

Steven is CleanStart’s first employee and is still employed with us today. He is a resident of the Downtown Eastside. Living conditions in an SRO can be challenging and he doesn’t have access to a phone or internet. Despite this, he always makes it to work for his 3 day a week schedule. Steven truly is the heart of CleanStart.

Jake

Jake has worked for CleanStart for 1.5 years – the longest he has ever held a position. Jake is a person with non-verbal autism and started his employment with us working once a month. Now, Jake shows up for his weekly shift without fail.
