Liberty ARC: Where Flexibility & Fulfillment Go Hand-in-Hand

Pat Wellman, a Direct Support Professional at Liberty ARC, will never forget the time when staff and individuals helped her out when she needed it most.

“In 2011, we lost our home to a fire,” Pat said. “The outpouring of support my husband and I received was amazing. Staff and individuals showed so much love and compassion to us. They organized a spaghetti dinner at the Mohawk Day Hab. It was a wonderful thing they did for us and it’s something I will never forget.”

Pat has been working for Liberty ARC since 2003. Her favorite aspect of her position is that it gives her the opportunity to help people and get to know them at the same time.

“I’m a people person with a lot of compassion,” she said. “I just enjoy talking to the individuals I support to get to know them better. I also love taking them to new places and sharing new experiences with them. It’s all very rewarding.”

Pat also loves that her position is flexible – so flexible, in fact, that Pat goes to Texas for half the year to escape the winter weather and visit her children. When she returns in May, she has a job waiting for her.

“The flexibility at Liberty ARC is great,” she said. “When I come back, all I have to do is get updated on any new training and then I can jump right back into the position.”

Pat suggests that anyone who wants a flexible and fulfilling job apply to Liberty ARC.

“Besides the flexibility, which can be key to some people, the job is so rewarding because of the relationships you form with the individuals you support,” she said. “You show them love and compassion and they show you the same – it’s such a fulfilling feeling. Nothing compares.”
