As the organization’s Executive Director of Operations and Personal Relations, Beaumont has propelled its mission, “to serve individuals with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities, frail elders, and their families,” forward. Due to his concerted efforts, the agency has seen numerous individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities reach their full potential in their careers and personal lives.
Providing opportunities for inclusion for people with disabilities has been Beaumont’s long-term goal. Throughout his years in the healthcare industry, he has ensured, with the help of his interpersonal and organizational skills and industry expertise, that medical professionals and clients alike have been receiving the services and opportunities they truly deserve and have been living their lives to the fullest.
