Joshua Whitcomb comes to Nonotuck in hopes of “giving back” through work in the Human Services field. He says he brings a good sense of humor to Nonotuck.

Outside of work, his hobbies include spending quality time with my family, hiking, biking, and learning computer programming. A quote that inspires him is: “"No, no. Do, or do not. There is no try."

“(Through shared living) people with a disability experience a real transformation and discover confidence in themselves; they discover their capacity to make choices, and also find a certain liberty and above all their dignity as human beings.”
