In creating meaningful connections, a Hummingbird activity specialist discovered an interesting program at a church near her client Josephine’s previous home in NYC. The program is a year-long series of events inspired by the work of Dr. MLK Jr. Their activity session focused on listening to a speech by Dr. King and then discussing Josephine’s work with Adam Clayton Powell and how much she missed Dr. King’s presence. She declared that she was emotional listening to the speech and made a note of it so that she could hear it again. Connecting her with this transformative time in her life supported her emotional well-being.
Finding gems of information about our clients opens opportunities to connect them to what matters most, and that nurtures value and meaning and dignity.
