Client Perspectives

Alan Clark

“I like AFI because when I am here I keep busy. I enjoy working with the Maintenance and Janitorial Departments. I like the classes I take and my favorite is Education because I learn about things I never knew. I have learned about the history of Florida, the NASA Space Program, and Volcanoes.  AFI is great!”



Tarea Edwards

“I like coming to AFI because every day, I have chances to work in contracts or the cafeteria to earn a paycheck.  I like going on field trips in the community and I get to see my friends every day. I also participate in Aktion Club and help my community.”




Trevor Jenkins

“I like coming to AFI because I am able to learn how to do different things like work in the cafeteria or be a Mobility Assistant. I like all of my classes but Social Media is my favorite. I am able to use computers and learn about different topics every week. I respect the staff and they respect me. I enjoy the activities that AFI sponsors like the Thanksgiving Feast and the client Christmas Party. I like that AFI gives me opportunities to be independent and make my own choices.”



Elizabeth High

“I like coming to AFI because I get to see my friends every day. I am able to help staff prepare items for the snack bar and I get to work in contracts and earn a paycheck. I like my Skills Instructors. They help me learn about all kinds of things and I am able to give ideas for projects. I also like going to the Aktion Club meetings and planning upcoming events. AFI makes me happy!”
