Without the commitment and positive attitudes of our staff, The Discovery House would not be able to provide the top-quality service that it does. To honor our employees and recognize their contribution, we hosted our annual Employee Awards for 2014. At the top of the list is Joy Crownover, who received the distinction of “Employee of the Year.” As operations manager at The Discovery House, Joy has the responsibility of making sure that all aspects of our treatment center run smoothly. She was recognized for her dedication to our clients and all of her fellow staff members.
Joy is devoted to The Discovery House mission of providing compassionate, safe and professional care for each individual who comes here for treatment. Our employee recognition event also included awards for our “rising stars,” who demonstrate tremendous ability for growth, and “unsung heroes,” who often do great deeds with little notice. We are aware that showing appreciation for the hard work of our team not only gives them much-deserved special attention, but even more importantly, it motivates them to continue serving our clients with the highest quality of care.
2014 Year in Review
In our commitment to community service, we partnered with several organizations in the Reseda area. We sponsored citywide youth baseball and softball programs, as well as a reading program at a local elementary school. Our staff and clients took part in special events, such as the Relay for Life to support cancer research, Gay Pride Weekend, and “Light Up the Night” in collaboration with Revitalize Reseda. We are proud to be good neighbors and to carry the message of recovery into the community.
