"Since, Sam has been working with your program – he has become more confident, and looks forward to going to work.Sam learned to read some by sight and memory, but once he aged out of School, he didn't try to read or learn new words anymore. Since working with Virage he is now trying to pronounce street names that we pass often, because he has more confidence in his reading with the help of his job coach. He has now even turned on the closed-captioning on his TV. A trick my Niece (a School Teacher) had me try when he was younger, so he could associate the written word with the sound. Sam has started doing that again since working on the mobile crew, so that shows me, he really is trying to learn as much as he can. I am so grateful that I did speak with Neisha Jackson and enrolled him in the Virage Community Service program."Joyce Smith White
