Success Stories


Success. Made possible.

At MOKA, we measure success individually.  Each person determines their personal goals based on their own dreams
and desires for the future.  MOKA is proud to have played a part in the illustrative stories below.

Early Intervention Leads to Blossoming Social Skills

Described as fun, outgoing, and a quick learner, Jeremiah has taken great strides since starting with MOKA’s Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy program nearly two years ago.

A Whole Lot of Pep in His Step

Brian has a pep in his steps these days, and he prides himself on arriving early to his job at Canteen so he can earn extra money. With support from MOKA’s Job Developers and Canteen staff, Brian has excelled as an order picker since joining Canteen in Norton Shores.

Giving Back Sparks Connection and Friendship

Feeding America West Michigan distributes food to relieve hunger and increase food security in 40 counties throughout West Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. Having volunteers from MOKA support their mission is both essential and a highlight for them.

Taking Pride in Our Identity

Gathering together on tablets from the comfort of their own homes, a group of MOKA Leadership Development Opportunities (LDO) Fellows found friendship, fellowship, and fun.

Finding their voice

Rachel joined others in MOKA’s Community Supports program for a nine-week poetry workshop offered through The Diatribe. The group met virtually each week to learn more about creative writing and the power of spoken word poetry.
