CFVS awarded Certificate of Appreciation from NC Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services

“From the bottom of our hearts, please accept our most sincere thanks for working with our staff at Vocational Rehabilitation.

Thank you so much for all you do- all the employer visits, meeting at client’s homes, navigating medical or mental health crises, putting out fires, being a mentor, teacher, personal shopper, fashion designer, good cop, bad cop, nurse, sometimes a chauffeur and truly being an extended part of their family in helping them grow toward their goals!

We thank you for braving the pandemic and continuing to work on the front lines during this crazy, ‘unprecedented’ (aren’t you tired of hearing that?) time. You often go above and beyond to help each person with their individual and sometimes specialized needs and NEVER give up! We know it is not always glamorous, nor easy, but know that YOU are making a BIG difference in someone’s life daily, and YOU ARE APPRECIATED!

Thank you for seeing the ABILITY of these employees, instead of their limitations. We are eternally grateful for your kindness, your time and continued support.

It may be small and could never be enough, but please accept this Certificate of Appreciation and Recognition as a Distinguished Employer in promoting disability awareness and inclusion, and opportunity for all.”

Your friends at Vocational Rehabilitation in Morehead City and New Bern, NC.

Lawahna Corbett – a shining star

Lawahna Corbett began her career with Cape Fear Group Homes 12 years ago. Quiet and reserved, she came to work every day determined to learn all she could.

This young lady’s work ethic has remained the same from the beginning, clients first, always.  As a single mom of 3 she had to pass up certain promotions to be there for her kids, but still exhibited growth and resilience in both her professional and personal life.  Now that all her children are older, she finally accepted the 1st Shift Coordinator position at Robin Hood Group Home in 2019.  Lawahna knew the time was right. She was determined to move forward in her career and was finally ready to show her skills.  She has rapport with parents and staff, with her soft spoken and steady leadership and has earned respect in her role with her gentle personality and caring spirit .   

During this COVID-19 PANDEMIC Lawahna has never wavered as a reliable employee, adjusting to all the changes with a positive attitude as a team player.  She made it a priority to maintain a normal schedule for our clients. She has been a strong leader, guiding the staff to understand the changes that were needed and  creative ways to make them happen. 

Thank you Lawahna Corbett. You are truly a shining star for the entire Cape Fear Group Homes family!
