“The mission of Spectrum makes it so easy for me to donate my time and talent.  The dedication of the staff is unsurpassed.  I find it incredibly heart-warming to see these disabled young men and women working in an environment where they are productive, happy, and have a sense of self-worth and purpose.  One look at the smiles on their faces says it all! ”
