Scott Brinson – Nominee, MITC 2021 Hero Award
Scott is a shared living coordinator in New Hampshire. At the height of the pandemic, Scott offered to move into an individual’s apartment when a provider left before a suitable replacement could be found. Weeks turned into months, but Scott stayed and kept the individual on an even keel. During this time, Scott was unable to see his own family for more than a few hours at a time. When a new provider was identified, Scott made sure before he moved out that they had a solid relationship and were truly knowledgeable about how to support the individual. While he did not need to keep up with his caseload while he served as a provider, Scott never stopped checking in on the other people he supports.
