One of the most formative experiences in my life was attending a Jesuit school. The Jesuits powerfully impressed upon me the degree to which our lives benefit from the contributions of others who came before us, and the importance of committing ourselves to live in service of others. The Cura team, working in concert every day for the benefit of the I/DD HCBS community is the most powerful realization of that commitment I have ever experienced. Cura is a team of extraordinary individuals who have come together from across the country and from various important disciplines. We are united with a shared passion to improve the lives of across the I/DD support community. Working with these incredible people, and seeing the positive impact we're having every day is the most rewarding experience of my career.
