One Mother’s Comments
Recently, a mother of one of our consumers sent this note to Bill Kelsay, Director of Community/Day Programs.
“After a very stressful yet successful day, I was blessed to come home and take some quick shots of my babygirl and her amazing assistant, Elaina. Its one thing to have a great person to care for your child in your absence, but it’s an awesome feeling to know that the person who’s caring for your child, truly cares for her!!! It truly does a mother’s heart good! For that, I thank God!!!”
Sycamore’s Direct Service Personnel go through an intensive orientation that include individual specific training to help them learn about the individuals they will be serving. We take pride in selecting employees who see their value in what they do and who they serve. Elaina has taken a step beyond that of a caregiver to becoming a friend.
In Memory of Bob Gootee
We want to thank all those who donated to Sycamore in memory of Bob Gootee, Jr. Bob served Sycamore in various ways over many years. He sat on our Board of Directors and, as a parent, he was actively involved in services being provided by Sycamore. He played a large role in the acquisition and opening of our Indy South Day Program. Bob did a lot of things for Sycamore and we will miss him. We will remember his ready smile and willingness to do whatever we needed to get a job done. Many have sent donations since his passing and its easy to see he had earned love and respect from many. Thank you all for your generosity as we remember a willing worker, a loving parent and a very good friend. >>
Amy Fenn, PLUS Program Manager at the Plainfield Correctional Facility. Amy had read about our Tiki Time event and dug a little deeper to see what kind of agency we were. After reading over our website and talking with Karen about services provided, Amy called to let us know we would be receiving a $1,000 donation from the PLUS Program. Pat welcomed the donation, as well as the new community connection prompted by Amy’s original call.
