D’re is an upbeat, friendly young man who takes pride in looking and doing his best. He makes friends easily and shows respect to others. Someday, he wants to live on his own, and he works hard toward that goal in both of his jobs in food services and for the Rug program. He helps to sort materials and with preparation for rug production. Being employed has made him a more confident, positive, and respectful person that people enjoy being around, and because he has earned the money himself, he gets to spend it on things he needs or wants.
