Big news for Patrick
November 03, 2016
EVENT DATE Sep 09, 2016
Patrick Stapleton is 46 yr old, mentally challenged, and a devout Christian.
Patrick would like to move to Pella, Iowa to be near the Christian Opportunity Center (http://christianopportunity.org/) in order to volunteer to help the disabled. In Patrick's own words:
“The reasons I am going to Pella, Iowa is to fully understand what it takes to provide services to the disabled community to the degree that fully meets their needs. To get a better understanding of what is involved in providing services to the disabled, I am going to volunteer at the Christian Opportunity Center. Working directly with the disabled at the facility, I will be able to see all aspect of how a really good organization provides those services on a day to day basis. In addition, I want to better understand what it takes to lead a charitable organization. By volunteering at the Christian Opportunity Center, I will get a better understand of the leadership skills needed and the costs involved in operating such a facility.”
Patrick's ultimate goal is to receive the necessary knowledge to help others like himself through his organization, Stephen's House.
Patrick will be moving to Pella, Iowa September 9th, 2016.
Donations will be used for to assist in Patrick's moving and living expenses. The ultimate target is for a year's worth of expenses so Patrick will have time to get settled, start volunteering, and find rewarding employment.
All donations go directly to Patrick's bank account.
