We asked some of the staff at Center for Change what makes them happy.  Here are some of their answers:

“My amazing and hilarious family, jumbo shrimp, and golf!” – Tamara Noyes, Business Development Director

"Spending time with people that I love, trying new things (new music, food, traveling to new places), reaching goals that I’ve set for myself. And being grateful for the experiences I’ve had instead of comparing myself to others." - Amanda Aagard, Admissions Call Manager

"What makes me happy to be alive is spending time with my family and friends. Being able to watch my nieces and nephews grow up and learn about the world around them. Getting out in the sunshine and feeling the warmth on my skin. Also listening to music makes me very happy!" - Jordan Anderson, Front Office

"My family makes me happy, I have a new little grand-daughter who just brings new joy into my life. I love being a daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother." - Pam Kidd, Admissions Director

"Plants! I have several plants around my house and just started a garden in my balcony. It’s amazing to me how happy I am when I see how much my plants have grown. I can’t wait to have vegetables from my garden!" - Kathy Spencer, Direct Care Manager
