On Friend 2 Friend Friday, we introduce you to one participant waiting on a volunteer in our programs for adults with disabilities. This week…
Meet 30-year-old Liliana.
She’s living with her mom and younger sister in the same Revere apartment they’ve shared for the last 24 years – a place they love for the proximity to the beach and MBTA. Lil is the self-described caretaker in her family. (“I remember mine and everybody else’s appointments,” she says, “even when they’re months away.”) She’s especially proud of her family’s Hispanic culture. She’s a huge music-lover (Blake Shelton, JLo, Ricky Martin)! Also, she’s hilarious. “I love making people laugh.”
Liliana, who has a developmental disabilitiy and ADHD, was accepted to Friend 2 Friend seven months ago. She’s looking forward to being matched in the Community Program.
Lil’s ideal Friend: Has a happy disposition, a great sense of humor and a real interest in making a new friend.
