Maxo exemplified all the qualities we value most in direct care staff:

  • He was dedicated to ensuring that participants lived their best lives and went above and beyond to support the activities they loved.
  • He gave his all and was a supportive team player, helping make his group home a great workplace.
  • He was committed to ensuring that his work reflected the highest quality standards.
To honor Maxo Joseph and the values he stood for, MAB  honors the best of our direct care staff with an annual event.  The annual awards total $50,000, with individual awards ranging from $2,000 to $10,000. Each year’s honorees will be selected by a committee representing staff, family members, and community supporters.
