Welcoming Global Talent to CP Hudson Valley
The city of Brewster, New York is experiencing an influx of new and diverse populations from Nigeria, Jamaica, and beyond as CP Unlimited expands its international recruitment drive to bring on qualified folks from international destinations to join the CP team and care for the people we support.
Over the last several months, the Agency welcomed more than ten new Direct Care Counselors, Residence Coordinators, and other skilled workers who trained in Psychology, Social Work, and other social science fields before coming to the States. Each receives assistance with the H1B Visa process and getting settled, prior to working through our training program and shadowing experienced staff.
The playlist, featuring four of our new Rehabilitation Counselors, is embedded below so we can share their wonderful words and experiences at CP Unlimited:
“Life is a classroom! I have only been here twenty days but the [people we support] have taught me many life lessons and I’m very appreciative of that. I would recommend this to people back home!” –Paula Harris Forbes, Jamaica
“I want to serve people and…the working environment here allows me to express my abilities…everybody has a goal to achieve.” -Aniebiefabasi Ubom, Nigeria
“I am so proud of our recruitment efforts yielding real benefits for the people we support and helping mitigate the field-wide staffing shortages that impact our ability to deliver the best-possible care for those with I/DD in Hudson Valley,” said Penny-Lynn Pagliaro, Executive Director, CP-Unlimited, Hudson Valley Division.
