May these Villas be under the special care of the Blessed Virgin Mary and her Spouse and the guardian angels. Amen. Authored by Bishop Thomas J. Grady - Bishop of the Diocese of Orlando, deceased

ACHIEVING THEIR DREAMS

Please join us on March 13, 2013 at The Ballroom at Church Street Station, Orlando for our “Achieving Their Dreams� fundraising event. The purpose of this one-hour event, which is free to all attendees, is to increase awareness about the importance of Bishop Grady Villas' mission and to give guests an opportunity to meet our residents and get involved at the level of their interest and capacity. Although guests will be given an opportunity to support our mission in various ways, there is no requirement to give other than one hour of their time. As much as anything, we want people to learn about the great work our staff is doing to serve individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. For those of you who also want to participate by serving as a Table Captain by inviting nine of your friends and associates to join you at your table on March 13th, we will offer Table Captain orientations to make your jobs of inviting others as easy as possible. Whether you wish to invite some of the same friends who attended last year or new friends to this special event, our goal is to tell our story to as many people as possible who have an interest in working with and supporting people with disabilities.

Dear Friends, Kevin and Linda Shaughnessy have been long-time advocates for Bishop Grady Villas. Kevin and Linda have participated in Bishop Grady Villas in many ways, including serving on the Board of Directors, funding Bishop Grady Villas’ Endowment Fund, sponsoring the Annual Harvest Ball, volunteering at Bishop Grady Villas, and even helping install railings to make our rooms wheelchair accessible. Kevin also has provided pro bono legal assistance and Linda has co-chaired the Harvest Ball for three years. They treasure working with and supporting the individuals we serve, and they are truly instruments of the Lord who believe in Bishop Grady Villas’ mission and the sanctity of life. The ministry of Mr. and Mrs. Shaughnessy is making a difference in the lives of the people served by Bishop Grady Villas and their ability to become as self-sufficient as possible and less dependent on public assistance. For their commitment to our mission, we honor Kevin and Linda Shaughnessy with the Bishop Grady Villas Lifetime Legacy Award at this year’s Harvest Ball.

We are grateful for the Lord's continued blessings on our programs and we hear God's call to grow in our capacity to serve individuals with disabilities throughout Central Florida. When Sr. Elizabeth Marie Stoup, SSJ first dreamed of Bishop Grady Villas, she hoped to create a place where individuals with disabilities could grow in independence and experience the opportunity to develop and realize their God-given gifts. Sister’s dream became a reality when Bishop Grady Villas opened on New Year’s Day, 2004. That small group of original residents blossomed to a full community of 48 and a wait list of almost 50 individuals who would like to call Bishop Grady Villas home in the near future. Sister’s dream inspired us to continue to broaden our capacity to serve. As a result we began to provide Employment Services to individuals with disabilities who live in Osceola, Orange, Polk and Seminole counties in 2008. Last year, we added two additional employment specialists to match even more jobseekers with disabilities with employment opportunities. As a result, we served 68 additional individuals who do not reside in our residential community to find work. Last year, our services made a difference in the lives of 116 men and women in Central Florida. We hope to continue to grow in our capacity through the support of partners like you. Consider providing a disability mentoring day experience, on-the-job training or employment opportunity for one of our jobseekers. You could host a one-hour lunch tour at Bishop Grady Villas, inviting your colleagues, friends or family so that they can learn more about our mission. Finally, we hope that you will invest in our mission through volunteering your time or services or by making a financial contribution. Your support will help us serve even more individuals so that they, in turn, have the opportunity share their God-given gifts with others. Sincerely,

Kevin C. Johnson Executive Director

RESIDENTIAL PROGRAMS

Bishop Grady Villas’ Residential Programs are designed to assist the individuals we serve in achieving their dreams. The supports we provide include supervision and training activities to assist our residents in acquiring, maintaining or improving independent living skills. This includes personal health and hygiene skills such as bathing, oral hygiene, healthy eating and exercise; homemaking skills such as food preparation, vacuuming, ironing and laundry; socialization activities; and, companion activities that enable residents to access the community and develop social roles. In addition, Bishop Grady Villas provides day respite for individuals who live in their family home.

EMPLOYMENT SERVICES

Our Employment Services assist jobseekers who reside throughout Osceola, Orange, Polk and Seminole counties in gaining employment. Our services begin with a comprehensive person-centered process called “Discovery.” We get to know the jobseeker by speaking with family and others who know the person best. We then observe the jobseeker in a variety of settings and use this information to develop a profile and employment plan that we use to assist the jobseeker in applying and interviewing with employers in the community. Once the individual is given an offer of employment we act as a consultant for the employer and provide supplemental on-the-job training support, as requested. Finally, after the new employee is stabilized in his or her job, our employment specialist continues to provide ongoing support to ensure that the employee continues to thrive as well as to assist in career enhancement opportunities.

GREGG

Gregg chooses to live at Bishop Grady Villas because “it is a nice place to live and I have a bedroom and a bathroom all to myself. I wanted to live independently and this is my chance!” Gregg is excited about the opportunities he has to become independent. “No one ever took the time to show me how to iron my clothes before. Now I can iron my own clothes and I am proud of looking nice.” Gregg is serving on the Harvest Ball Host Committee. “I enjoy attending the monthly meetings and helping plan the event. I’ve gotten an opportunity to write speeches. I really like public speaking now. I used to be afraid to speak in public, but I am more confident every day.” “Before living at Bishop Grady Villas I didn’t have a lot of friends. Now I have a lot of friends. I really enjoy meeting new people and now I can go do fun things with my friends. We like to go to places like bowling, the movies and shopping. I’m really busy now! For the first time ever I have a gym membership and I go to work out. I play basketball with my friends and I even have my own bike and can ride it every day if I want. I haven’t had an opportunity to ride a bike since I was a kid!” Now that he lives at Bishop Grady Villas, Gregg has a list of things that he wants to learn, such as sending emails on the computer, cooking a meal, managing his money, working in a greenhouse and serving the community. Most of all, however, he wants to start looking for a new job so he can learn new work skills and make more money!

KEVIN

Participants in our Vocational Development Program were given an opportunity to participate in a pilot program offered through the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD). This pilot was based on the Grameen Bank method of microcredit. The individuals who participated in this program started their own business entitled “Friends at Work.” Maryjane Wysocki, Regional Employment Coordinator, Central Florida and North Suncoast Regions Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) said, “APD developed this microcredit program to increase opportunities for participants to engage in competitive employment, including self-employment outcomes. The goal is to assist individuals with disabilities to integrate more fully into the community, establishing financial stability, widening their experiences and allowing them to reach their full potential.” 8

Eight individuals participated in the first session of the Microcredit Program at Bishop Grady Villas. Resident Kevin said, “We learned how to start a business and how to keep a business running. Now we know how to manage money and save. Most importantly we had to work together as a team. This is important for any job. Your co-workers really have to get along to be successful.” Maryjane said, “This group started out with limited to no experience in decision making, particularly as it relates to employment. They were extremely hesitant and uncomfortable taking on leadership roles. Each grew in their self-confidence and belief in their own abilities. Each participant learned a host of skills and an intangible positive feeling of self-worth.” Kevin said, “This shows the world that people with disabilities can get jobs. We are just like everyone else and we should get more involved in our communities.” Kevin was so successful at this program that he hopes to start his own business, just like his brothers. He is well on his way.

LORI

When Lori first moved to Bishop Grady Villas, she told her parents, “Now, I have a place of my own. Now, all of your girls have their own place to live.” Lori’s mother, Susan says, “Bishop Grady Villas is Lori’s place in the sun; this is her time to shine. It means so much to us to know that Lori is safe and cared for. We know that Lori has friends and she gets to live in a place where she feels no different than her sisters. This is all we could have hoped for!” Lori had work experiences in the past, but none were the right fit. “The staff at Bishop Grady Villas know Lori so well, they know her strengths and her interests. They helped find her a job that was finally the right fit for her. This job suits her strengths and Lori is a success at work. She is happy at work; she likes her job and her coworkers. I can tell that she feels better about herself. We feel that her job is a continuation of the wonderful work that Bishop Grady Villas does for Lori,” said Susan. Like Kevin, Lori also participated in the Microcredit Program at Bishop Grady Villas. “Just weeks before starting the microcredit program, Lori was judged as ‘not ready for work.’ She was shy and not very verbal. By the end of the program, she could explain the enterprise and products to any who approached the table, taking cash in hand, giving change, noting the cash-handling and inventory sheets and quickly resetting the table between customers,” said Maryjane Wysocki. This innovative program set her up for success at her job at Perfect Petroleum. Bishop Grady Villas offers Lori a place of her own. Here, she has friends, activities and now a job. Lori’s mother couldn’t be prouder, “It’s such a good feeling for Lori to get paid for her work and to feel appreciated for her hard work.” 9

Eight individuals participated in the first session of the Microcredit Program at Bishop Grady Villas. Resident Kevin said, “We learned how to start a business and how to keep a business running. Now we know how to manage money and save. Most importantly we had to work together as a team. This is important for any job. Your co-workers really have to get along to be successful.” Maryjane said, “This group started out with limited to no experience in decision making, particularly as it relates to employment. They were extremely hesitant and uncomfortable taking on leadership roles. Each grew in their self-confidence and belief in their own abilities. Each participant learned a host of skills and an intangible positive feeling of self-worth.” Kevin said, “This shows the world that people with disabilities can get jobs. We are just like everyone else and we should get more involved in our communities.” Kevin was so successful at this program that he hopes to start his own business, just like his brothers. He is well on his way.

LORI

When Lori first moved to Bishop Grady Villas, she told her parents, “Now, I have a place of my own. Now, all of your girls have their own place to live.” Lori’s mother, Susan says, “Bishop Grady Villas is Lori’s place in the sun; this is her time to shine. It means so much to us to know that Lori is safe and cared for. We know that Lori has friends and she gets to live in a place where she feels no different than her sisters. This is all we could have hoped for!” Lori had work experiences in the past, but none were the right fit. “The staff at Bishop Grady Villas know Lori so well, they know her strengths and her interests. They helped find her a job that was finally the right fit for her. This job suits her strengths and Lori is a success at work. She is happy at work; she likes her job and her coworkers. I can tell that she feels better about herself. We feel that her job is a continuation of the wonderful work that Bishop Grady Villas does for Lori,” said Susan. Like Kevin, Lori also participated in the Microcredit Program at Bishop Grady Villas. “Just weeks before starting the microcredit program, Lori was judged as ‘not ready for work.’ She was shy and not very verbal. By the end of the program, she could explain the enterprise and products to any who approached the table, taking cash in hand, giving change, noting the cash-handling and inventory sheets and quickly resetting the table between customers,” said Maryjane Wysocki. This innovative program set her up for success at her job at Perfect Petroleum. Bishop Grady Villas offers Lori a place of her own. Here, she has friends, activities and now a job. Lori’s mother couldn’t be prouder, “It’s such a good feeling for Lori to get paid for her work and to feel appreciated for her hard work.” 9


GREGG

Gregg chooses to live at Bishop Grady Villas because “it is a nice place to live and I have a bedroom and a bathroom all to myself. I wanted to live independently and this is my chance!” Gregg is excited about the opportunities he has to become independent. “No one ever took the time to show me how to iron my clothes before. Now I can iron my own clothes and I am proud of looking nice.” Gregg is serving on the Harvest Ball Host Committee. “I enjoy attending the monthly meetings and helping plan the event. I’ve gotten an opportunity to write speeches. I really like public speaking now. I used to be afraid to speak in public, but I am more confident every day.” “Before living at Bishop Grady Villas I didn’t have a lot of friends. Now I have a lot of friends. I really enjoy meeting new people and now I can go do fun things with my friends. We like to go to places like bowling, the movies and shopping. I’m really busy now! For the first time ever I have a gym membership and I go to work out. I play basketball with my friends and I even have my own bike and can ride it every day if I want. I haven’t had an opportunity to ride a bike since I was a kid!” Now that he lives at Bishop Grady Villas, Gregg has a list of things that he wants to learn, such as sending emails on the computer, cooking a meal, managing his money, working in a greenhouse and serving the community. Most of all, however, he wants to start looking for a new job so he can learn new work skills and make more money!

Participants in our Vocational Development Program were given an opportunity to participate in a pilot program offered through the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD). This pilot was based on the Grameen Bank method of microcredit. The individuals who participated in this program started their own business entitled “Friends at Work.” Maryjane Wysocki, Regional Employment Coordinator, Central Florida and North Suncoast Regions Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD) said, “APD developed this microcredit program to increase opportunities for participants to engage in competitive employment, including self-employment outcomes. The goal is to assist individuals with disabilities to integrate more fully into the community, establishing financial stability, widening their experiences and allowing them to reach their full potential.” 8

VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS

Bishop Grady Villas’ Vocational Training Program provides on-going educational activities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. These activities are intended to support the individual to have meaningful, valued roles in the community. Areas of training include self-advocacy, social skills, and vocational development. These services are scheduled for six hours daily during weekdays. Many individuals who participate in our program are also actively seeking employment in the community. Some individuals are currently employed but attend the program part-time to enhance their skills in the areas in which they are most interested. This service is open to both residents and individuals who reside in Osceola and Orange counties.

RESIDENTIAL PROGRAMS

Bishop Grady Villas’ Residential Programs are designed to assist the individuals we serve in achieving their dreams. The supports we provide include supervision and training activities to assist our residents in acquiring, maintaining or improving independent living skills. This includes personal health and hygiene skills such as bathing, oral hygiene, healthy eating and exercise; homemaking skills such as food preparation, vacuuming, ironing and laundry; socialization activities; and, companion activities that enable residents to access the community and develop social roles. In addition, Bishop Grady Villas provides day respite for individuals who live in their family home.

EMPLOYMENT SERVICES

Our Employment Services assist jobseekers who reside throughout Osceola, Orange, Polk and Seminole counties in gaining employment. Our services begin with a comprehensive person-centered process called “Discovery.” We get to know the jobseeker by speaking with family and others who know the person best. We then observe the jobseeker in a variety of settings and use this information to develop a profile and employment plan that we use to assist the jobseeker in applying and interviewing with employers in the community. Once the individual is given an offer of employment we act as a consultant for the employer and provide supplemental on-the-job training support, as requested. Finally, after the new employee is stabilized in his or her job, our employment specialist continues to provide ongoing support to ensure that the employee continues to thrive as well as to assist in career enhancement opportunities.

Dear Friends, Kevin and Linda Shaughnessy have been long-time advocates for Bishop Grady Villas. Kevin and Linda have participated in Bishop Grady Villas in many ways, including serving on the Board of Directors, funding Bishop Grady Villas’ Endowment Fund, sponsoring the Annual Harvest Ball, volunteering at Bishop Grady Villas, and even helping install railings to make our rooms wheelchair accessible. Kevin also has provided pro bono legal assistance and Linda has co-chaired the Harvest Ball for three years. They treasure working with and supporting the individuals we serve, and they are truly instruments of the Lord who believe in Bishop Grady Villas’ mission and the sanctity of life. The ministry of Mr. and Mrs. Shaughnessy is making a difference in the lives of the people served by Bishop Grady Villas and their ability to become as self-sufficient as possible and less dependent on public assistance. For their commitment to our mission, we honor Kevin and Linda Shaughnessy with the Bishop Grady Villas Lifetime Legacy Award at this year’s Harvest Ball.

We are grateful for the Lord's continued blessings on our programs and we hear God's call to grow in our capacity to serve individuals with disabilities throughout Central Florida. When Sr. Elizabeth Marie Stoup, SSJ first dreamed of Bishop Grady Villas, she hoped to create a place where individuals with disabilities could grow in independence and experience the opportunity to develop and realize their God-given gifts. Sister’s dream became a reality when Bishop Grady Villas opened on New Year’s Day, 2004. That small group of original residents blossomed to a full community of 48 and a wait list of almost 50 individuals who would like to call Bishop Grady Villas home in the near future. Sister’s dream inspired us to continue to broaden our capacity to serve. As a result we began to provide Employment Services to individuals with disabilities who live in Osceola, Orange, Polk and Seminole counties in 2008. Last year, we added two additional employment specialists to match even more jobseekers with disabilities with employment opportunities. As a result, we served 68 additional individuals who do not reside in our residential community to find work. Last year, our services made a difference in the lives of 116 men and women in Central Florida. We hope to continue to grow in our capacity through the support of partners like you. Consider providing a disability mentoring day experience, on-the-job training or employment opportunity for one of our jobseekers. You could host a one-hour lunch tour at Bishop Grady Villas, inviting your colleagues, friends or family so that they can learn more about our mission. Finally, we hope that you will invest in our mission through volunteering your time or services or by making a financial contribution. Your support will help us serve even more individuals so that they, in turn, have the opportunity share their God-given gifts with others. Sincerely,

Kevin C. Johnson Executive Director

Bishop Grady Villas supports persons with disabilities to use their God-given gifts to achieve greater independence, physical and emotional well-being, and spiritual growth. We empower these individuals from throughout Central Florida to reach their full potential through Christ-centered, personalized and wholistic residential, vocational and employment services, and community support.

Let us pray. Lord Jesus, as you walked on our earth you were God-like in your compassion and mercy. Your hands were healing hands. You made the lame whole and fed the hungry. You brought comfort and peace to those with disabilities. Dear Lord, we ask you to bless all who live in these homes and to bless all those who work and support this place. May these Villas be under the special care of the Blessed Virgin Mary and her Spouse and the guardian angels. Amen. Authored by Bishop Thomas J. Grady - Bishop of the Diocese of Orlando, deceased

For those of you who also want to participate by serving as a Table Captain by inviting nine of your friends and associates to join you at your table on March 13th, we will offer Table Captain orientations to make your jobs of inviting others as easy as possible.
