Fast Facts Country Acres... • has one handicapped accessible unit in each building. • apartments range from 312-633 sq/ft. • rent ranges from $345-$359 per month.
ETCH celebrated the reopening of the recently rehabilitated Country Acres apartment complex in west Wichita by holding a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony on July 26. The three 10-unit apartment buildings have been under construction since early 2010. “The original buildings were in very poor condition after more than 25 years of use,” said President/CEO Ron Pasmore. The apartments were originally constructed in 1984 as a two-building complex. The complex was expanded to include a third 10-unit building on the property in an effort to increase the number of affordable and supportive housing units available to adults with developmental disabilities.
May is an exciting month for KETCH. Every year at the Annual Meeting a handful of individuals served by KETCH are recognized for their accomplishments and successes. It’s an afternoon full of smiles, laughter, and a few tears, as those who work with each client share their triumphant stories with pride in their voices. It’s an afternoon that reminds us all why the staff at KETCH are lucky to work with such amazing individuals. Kristi Lee was nominated by Adult Life Skills Program Coordinator Caroline Goodall for Achievement in a Day Program. Kristi has come a long way since first starting at KETCH. When she started receiving services Kristi would often have behaviors, frequently stole from her peers, and had a difficult time trusting her staff. Kristi has now built strong relationships with her staff and has learned to focus her energy on more creative outlets such as song-writing, photography, and performing.
“Originally designed as two-bedroom apartments, with a small galley kitchen, the rennovation converted them to onebedroom units with larger kitchens,” said Pasmore, “This allows individuals to have their own apartment without having to share with a roommate.” With the renovations the buildings will have a higher efficiency rate allowing KETCH to focus more financial resources on services to individuals served in the residential program. The $2.3 million dollar project near Central and Tyler was funded by several resources including the Kansas Housing Resources Corporation as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment (Continued page 4)

Dear Friends of KETCH, One of the most positive highlights of the 2011 legislative session was the passage of the Employment First bill, HB 2336. This bill sets a new state policy that simply says that persons with disabilities, who are of working age and seeking state funded services, should be assisted to achieve employment in a competitive job that pays minimum wage or above. The bill will include an Employment First Commission, which will consist of five individuals appointed by the Governor and legislators who will work to make necessary changes in state policies to facilitate the preference for competitive employment. KETCH was actively involved in advocating for this bill. Our mission is focused upon helping the individuals we serve to live their life as independently as possible. Economic security is basic to oneâ€™s quality of life in the community. We believe that employment leads to not only greater levels of income, but also leads to greater levels of satisfaction and self-esteem. When a person is working, they have more to look forward to, have better overall health, and it helps save in the overall costs for their services. The challenge going forward will be to work with the business sector to increase employment opportunities for persons with disabilities. There are many societal myths pertaining to a personâ€™s disability limiting their ability to become employed. Employers we work with have found many positive effects to their bottom line from hiring a person with a disability. In the right job, a person with a disability is a positive addition to the workforce. We have had many such examples of successful job placements in our history of providing employment services. Sincerely,
Ashley Ruckman, editor 316.383.8889

(continued from page 1) Lois Wilson was recognized for her Achievement at Home after being nominated by Targeted Case Manager III Delcie Chappuis and Community Living Program Coordinator LaStella Duckworth. Prior to living in a residential setting at KETCH, Lois lived in an institution for 23 years, a nursing home for 16 years, and a retirement community for 21 years where she had her own apartment. In 2010 she moved into a KETCH group home. The move was scary for Lois as she had lived alone for more than two decades. She quickly adjusted to this new home. She has improved her hygiene and health while relishing in her role as â€œgrandmaâ€? at the home. Patrick Young was nominated by Vocational Trainer Vickie Hollenbeck for his Achievement at Work. Patrick grew up in an unstable environment and had a history of being abused and exploited. When he entered KETCH services in 2008 through a crisis placement, he began working by making filters. He was very quiet and shy when he started but has since blossomed and mastered every piece of equipment on the filters production line and is always looking for ways to learn and improve his skills. Brett Davis was recognized by Targeted Case Manager Kevin Watson for his Achievement in the Community. About a year ago, Brett decided he wanted to start volunteering in the community. He felt it was important to give back to
the city he says has given so much to him. He was given a volunteer position at the Sedgwick County Zoo. Brett truly enjoys volunteering and says he loves all of the animals and his co-workers equally. He would like to volunteer more hours at the zoo and find a second volunteer position in the near future. Charles Pasak was nominated by Manager of Community Employment June Schneider for his Achievement in Employment. When Charles started at KETCH in 1995 he immediately went to work in the community. His first job placement did not work out but he did not give up on his goal to work in the community. He soon accepted another position at TJ Maxx in 1996. Charles still works at TJ Maxx and gives 100% to all of his various job tasks. He truly enjoys his job, his co-workers, and is proud to say he has worked at the same company for almost 15 years. The Employer of the Year Award was given to Olive Garden East. KETCH began working with Olive Garden East in 1995. Through the years they have employed several KETCH clients and have allowed the Community Employment department to use the restaurant for job tryouts. In March of 1998 Olive Garden East hired a KETCH client to roll silverware. The hiring supervisor still works with the client today and is very supportive of her. The supervisor and his staff have built strong relationships with her, helped her overcome work related issues, and always look out for her better interest.

KETCH celebrated the expansion of the Encore Center for Lifelong Enrichment retirement program by holding a Hawaiian Luau themed open house on August 2. The previous location of the program limited the number of participants to 11. The program now has 22 participants with room to grow! Two of the Encore clients (pictured) show how happy they are to show off their new location by dancing for onlookers.
(Country Acres continued from page 1) Just days before the Eighth Annual Champions’ Golf Tournament, Wichita experienced torrential downpours and nasty, humid weather. Never fail, by May 23 the sun came out just in time for an easy, breezy day on the Tallgrass Country Club course. This year KETCH hosted an even 100 golfers. Though the number of KETCH President/CEO Ron Pasmore found a happy and eager client volunplayers is down from teer to help greet golfers with the valet last year, with the help cart. of sponsors and the golf committee KETCH was able to raise over $22,000 – our highest total in eight years! Not only was the committee instrumental in securing sponsors, but in soliciting prizes as well. Among the gifts provided was a local invention called the SandCaddy, a new item sure to be a golfer’s best friend. As the 100 golfers enjoyed the perfect weather, they were treated to a delicious chicken marsala and pasta lunch by Carrabba’s Italian Grill. Contests included the Putting Contest with prizes valued over $500, the Hole-in-One Contest with the chance to win a trip to Hawaii, and several other specialty contests. The tournament ended with a great dinner for all and fantastic prizes for our top winners. Thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors, especially: CBIZ MHM, Weber & Associates, Advanced Welding Technologies, Digital Office Systems, Hampel Oil, Hardman Benefit Plans, Pratt Industries, Waste Management, The Wolf, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, Wal-Mart, Preferred Health Systems, ING, House of Schwan, Lewis Street Glass, and Bob’s Transmission.

Act’s tax credit exchange program for low-income housing. An additional $150,000 grant was also awarded through the Affordable Housing Program. KETCH has also been able to secure $15,000 through the Spirit AeroSystems Good Neighbor Fund for the commons areas in each apartment building. The Goebel Family Star Lumber Charitable Trust contributed $20,000 towards the project, the Women of Wichita Charitable Foundation contributed $10,000, and more than $20,000 was donated by the Kansas Elks Association’s Ladies Major Project. KETCH currently serves 161 adults with developmental disabilities in its residential program. Through this residential program individuals are taught daily life skills such as cooking and cleaning. The organization is making a consorted effort to provide affordable and accessible housing as the private housing market cannot meet all of these needs at a cost individuals with developmental disabilities can afford. The completion of Country Acres concludes phase one of the Building a Future of Success campaign. The second phase of the campaign will conclude this fall with the dedication of the 10th Street project in mid-town Wichita for adults with challenging behaviors.
Furnishings in the commons areas (pictured) were purchased with funds contributed by the Spirit AeroSystems Good Neighbor Fund.
