Vodec People | Erin Bolte


Erin Bolte serves as Day Services Support Staff at our development center in Council Bluffs. She discovered Vodec through her mom, who worked in Residential Services when Erin was a child. Below is Erin in her own words.

“In the seven years that I’ve had the pleasure of being employed at Vodec, I’ve dipped my feet in just about every department we have. I’ve worked in our Prevocational Program, have helped out in Cares and Community Employment, and I’ve picked up shifts in Residential Services as well. The consumers are the reason I wake up and come to work every day. It’s an honor to not just work with them, but to have gotten to know them. They can make you smile and laugh even when you’re going through some horrible things in life. To be trusted by the employer to work with such amazing human beings every day is an honor in itself. I absolutely love what I do, who I’m surrounded by every day, and for the purpose I have here.”
