“Working with The Cedar Foundation has been incredibly rewarding and enjoyable. They gave us as much support as we needed and worked with us to give a young adult a very positive experience. I cannot stress enough just how valuable work placements are, not only for the young adult but also for the employer on many levels.” (Employer)
