About: Mike Strohbehn
Person Receiving Support

By: Connie Strohbehn

Mike grew up in the Bird Rock community of La Jolla. He was fully included in his neighborhood schools: Bird Rock Elementary, Muirlands Middle and La Jolla High. All this community building culminated in his job as a courtesy clerk at the Vons in downtown La Jolla. Mike has been there since 2000. He loves his job, especially working in produce. After Vons, Mike works out at the La Jolla Recreation close by. But perhaps the most favorite part of his day comes next, his volunteer job at Cadman Elementary School Prime Time, the after school childcare program for students. He assists with activities and watches out for the children. He is so happy to be moving across the street from Cadman, to an apartment at Bayview Apartments. Many of the Prime Time students will be his neighbors. There are even coworkers from Vons living there. He is very excited about all this. He is looking forward to this big step and to his brother and sister helping him move in when they visit over Christmas.
