Drew Erlandson, Residential Manager in Jamestown has been supervising both the North Main and the Prendergast Community Residences for the past couple of months. The Prendergast program was recently without management staff and in need of supervision and leadership.  Drew willingly accepted the oversight responsibilities for an additional program at the request of his supervisor.  Drew  has ensured that individual support was made readily available to the consumers and staff during the transition period.  Through his work ethic and degree of integrity, Drew was able to foster full cooperation of the Prendergast staff.  He has earned staff's respect and confidence as a leader and has effectively established an atmosphere of trust and teamwork. Once the agency selected a candidate for the position, Drew did not hesitate in accepting the added responsibility of training the new residential manager. The Prendergast program has maintained successful operations as a result of Drew's contributions.  Drew is well deserving of staff member of the month.  Congratulations!
