Think you’re going to go in the direction of your schooling? Maybe not. Listen to Jann and Dan Catunto discuss his career steps and why he veered off from his plan to be a civics teacher to assisting vulnerable people in our society.
Dan and his team help people with mental health problems who, through circumstances, were not able to overcome tragedy in their lives such as sexual and physical abuse.
In many cases, these people chose the path of self-medication and retreat. Working with individuals with challenges such as homelessness is Dan’s life’s work. His passion and caring for individuals less fortunate is inspiring. Dan also talks about his experience coming out as a gay man when he was in his late teens/early twenties and how that journey also informs the work he does.
