Adam’s Story

As a young man, Adam Frey was misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder but later properly diagnosed as high-functioning autism. Although he tried many times, he was unsuccessful in finding work on his own. 


In 2014, he was hired into BCI's Organizational Employment program. As his confidence grew, so did his performance. By 2018, he was offered a staff position with BCI as a Quality Auditor. During these years, he met his girlfriend Amber, earned his Missouri driver’s license, proposed, and bought his first home. 


When we opened the Skills Center in January of 2019, Adam was one of the first students in the Salesforce program. After successfully completing the program, passing his junior admin certification in May of 2019, and completing an internship, Adam now works as a full-time Salesforce administrator with a consulting firm. 


Adam’s story is one of amazing growth. The opportunity he was provided to work and train raised his skills and confidence and strengthened him mentally and physically. 


Imagine where Adam would be without this “first job” and the supports he was given at BCI... 

Imagine where Adam would be if he’d had these experiences at a younger age…

Imagine a world where more people like Adam receive training in programs designed just for them...
