Testimonials from employers who employed 2 clients at Y.E.S:

“We feel good having taken on someone who is Deaf, she is an eager employee, and we have had no problems in communication, via sms or face to face. She is great and enjoying her work and all of our clients are happy and continue to request her support. She has increased our repeat business”. (Ada)

 

“Our company decided to employ him with the hope that we could enrich his life and try to do something for a person with a disability. We think his life has improved as we had hoped but an extra bonus has been that everyone that has worked and been in contact with him feels their own life has been enriched and enhanced because of him. We would certainly recommend anybody hiring a hearing impaired person because like us you would find it a win/win experience.” (Peter)
