Becoming a Direct Care Professional with ACR Homes was honestly the BEST decision I have ever made. I was not only able to work and accumulate over 2400 hours of health care experience, but also discover who I am, what gives me the most personal and professional fulfillment, and where I want to go with my next major step in life.
