The pair spoke about their friendship, the Best Buddies’ programs, and the plethora of ways Best Buddies has improved the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities through meaningful employment, genuine friendships, and by offering an encouraging and supportive community of inclusion.
Anthony and Jorge spoke about their friendship which spans over twenty years; and the myriad of ways Best Buddies has improved both of their lives. “Best Buddies has helped me find new friends and secure a great job that I love” said Morilla. “It has enriched my life…it’s the best thing to happen to me since I finished high school.”
