Enjoy Your Job and Make A Difference at WACOSA

Are you looking for a meaningful job that will provide a positive impact on the lives of others? Does working in a fun team environment with health insurance options interest you? Consider a rewarding career with WACOSA!


Below, you’ll find a testimonial by Ann Kennedy, who is the Sales, Marketing and Communications Manager at WACOSA, and you’ll learn how she finds fulfillment in her job:


One of the reasons I started working at WACOSA was, simply, I needed a job. Even more than that, though, I was ready for a change. I had spent my life working in for-profit businesses. I had great jobs and not-so-great jobs. The reality is that I didn’t have any passion for my work.

In 2008 I started at WACOSA. I knew it was a nonprofit that helped individuals with disabilities to work and live in their community. I didn’t know much more than that. About a week into my employment everything changed. At WACOSA, the shift change is a busy time. I was looking out the window watching the people we serve during the shift change when it dawned on me. I was responsible for helping all these people with disabilities break down barriers and find meaningful employment. With that employment comes purpose, pride, and a greater sense of self. It was that very moment I realized what I had was much more than a job. I had found a truly meaningful career.

Now, when I go home at the end of the day, I take joy in knowing I am serving the greater needs of our community. I am helping really good people and I am working with a dedicated team of professionals. You see, WACOSA changed the definition of what rewarding work is for me. Now I make a difference in the lives of others. The biggest surprise, however, is how the people we serve made a difference in me.
