I’ve accomplished more than I ever thought possible.

John, Head of Maintenance 

has been working at BRC since 2002. He started at BRC as an intern through the workforce development program, and later became a permanent member of the maintenance staff and is now a senior maintenance worker.

When you joined BRC, what were you hoping your experience would be like? Has it been like that?

I started as an intern [through Horizons Workforce Development Program] and later I was hired on as a maintenance worker. At the time I was just hoping to survive, but it turned out better than I could have expected.

What keeps you motivated and engaged in your work with BRC?

The work that BRC does for people: helping them to change and turn their lives around. I’ve watched BRC grow and I’ve been able to be a part of it. I’ve accomplished more than I ever thought possible. I have a purpose – I actually love my job.

If you were to recruit a friend or colleague to BRC, what reason would you give for why they should join?

It’s not often that you can work in a place and empower and help those who are truly in need. It’s truly a good feeling. I might say that it has made me the person I am today.

Rather than create wealth for private developers, could we use the same shelter contract to create housing for low-income people?
