Dan Baker Staff Appreciation Day

Dan Baker Staff Appreciation Day is in honor of Dan Baker, parent of a person living in the Yakima Community Living program and long time board member, who also served eight terms as Community Living Board President.  Mr. Baker is a long time advocate of Direct Support Staff and of the dedicated work they do.  Since his retirement from the Community Living Board, in recognition of his dedicated work, Community Living has set aside a day each summer to recognize all Direct Support Staff in the work that they do.  Staff were recognized this past summer by the management teams of each of the four Community Living branches.
