JEFF PERRON – Unsung Hero

Jeff Perron is Turnbridge's Unsung Hero for the month

Jeff Perron is Turnbridge’s Unsung Hero for the month of April. Jeff is the overnight support staff for Phase II of the program, and he has been in that position for the past six months. He works hard to ensure the safety and stability of the residence, and attributes success to great teamwork within the Turnbridge community. As overnight support staff, Jeff is primarily responsible for ensuring the safety of the residents. He makes certain that all are accounted for, distributes medications, and, in the morning, helps them all to start their day. “It’s a part of doing what I can,” Jeff said. “I’ve been blessed. It keeps me in touch, and keeps me grounded. It’s challenging to try to get through to some of the guys. They’re young, and I was young once, too, so I understand. When you’re at peace, exciting things, good things, happen. The challenge is on their side. I’m just there to do what I can.”
