Latham Adult Thrives in Office Environment

Matt  is an affable, polite young man in his 20s.  The Connecticut native has lived on Cape Cod since 2008 at one of Latham’s adult group homes. Matt’s high energy level and acumen at organizing led him to seek work and greater involvement in the community.   He continues to volunteer at Sturgis Library, one of Cape Cod’s oldest buildings in Barnstable Village.  Never one to sit on his laurels, Matt began working at Latham Centers’ Orleans administrative office in August 2011. With the oversight of a job coach, he first started working one day a week and because of his hard work, skills and pleasant manner, was soon promoted to two days a week. 

Matt likes to keep busy and enjoys doing a variety of tasks.  He is conscientious and has a strong work ethic. He is particularly adept in math and has been a tremendous asset to the Finance Department.  He has been extremely helpful with filing projects, shredding documents, copying, organizing and preparing informational materials and doing computer data entry.  Recently, he completed a large mailing project for the Development Department, folding letters, organizing inserts, sealing and posting envelopes.  He does all these tasks with enthusiasm and an eagerness to please.  He is diligent and precise in everything he accomplishes. 

Last year, Matt also participated in the Second Annual Latham Charity Golf Classic at Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club in Brewster and won a Silver medal in bowling at the Special Olympic Games held in Worcester.  He loves doing crossword and math puzzles and is an avid movie buff.  He has been invited to play in the Third Annual Latham Charity Golf Classic October 22, 2012 to benefit programs and services for all Latham children and adults.

Congratulations Matt for all your exceptional work, with great appreciation from your colleagues in Administration.
