Shane is a kind and active young man who lives at PARCA’s Alameda House, a shared living residence for adults with developmental disabilities. PARCA’s Independent Living Services staff work with Shane on a weekly basis to help him further his independence, pursue his interests and improve his social skills. With their support, Shane has made remarkable progress towards his personal goals.
In addition to working full time, Shane volunteers for Pets-N-Need and is an active outdoors person. He is well-liked and respected by his peers and actively participates in social recreation activities and PARCA events. In March Shane was presented with the PARCA Client Achievement Award for his progress in achieving his goals.
All of the remarkable people who are part of the PARCA family grace our lives with compassion, courage, and a very special wisdom about life. It is our honor to both support them, and learn from them. Our donors make it possible for PARCA to help them lead rich, full lives as independently as possible.
