    What our Employees say:

    Nothing means more to us at the Anne Carlsen Center than our students and the individuals we serve.
    But at ACC we also highly value our employees time, effort, and dedication to our mission.

    Seeing the kids smile – coming in to work and seeing that is what makes them happy – you know you are making an impact on their lives. When they accomplish things, you can see it on their faces.

    When you see the kids smile, it just makes you feel better. You get a chance to learn what they like. Maybe it is a book, or a blanket, or a particular song.
