David Weller is a Tesla employee who unfortunately experienced a back injury while completing his duties. When referred by Tesla to the Transition2Work program, David was eager to return to work. He requested to be stationed at Caritas of Austin, a nonprofit he has volunteered before. It didn’t take long for David to work alongside Caritas of Austin staff to provide life-changing opportunities at Tesla for those in need.
