WHAT WE DO

PARC helps children and adults focus on abilites, rather than disabilities. RESIDENTIAL PARC maintains 4 residences for individuals with developmental disabilities in St. Petersburg. The 94 residents served by these homes range in age and abilities. The residents’ well being is PARC’s primary concern as they live, work and enjoy life in Pinellas County. Burkett Villa, is a group home for 15 adults who enjoy activities and community excursions based on personal choice, with a focus on quality life enhancement. PARC Cottage, is a 16 bed Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) for children and young adults. Curry Villa, is a person-centered home for 15 adults with the potential for independence and self-reliance. Bert Muller Home formerly known as the PARC Center Apartments (PCA), is an Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) for 48 men and women.

Children and their families receive early intervention services from an interdisciplinary team including teachers, social workers, nurses, behavior analysts, and therapists. Services can be given on the PARC campus and at the child's home. For adults, PARC embraces a “person-centered” approach that allows staff to assist PARC participants in making their own choices. PARC staff also work with individuals who are important in the participant's life, such as family members, guardians and friends. Participants can design their own curriculum-choosing what they would like to do, where they would like to live and where they would like to work. These effective services help the children, youth, adults and their families improve their quality of life in the simple everyday experiences that make up all our lives. PARC promotes a high level of support and services for each individual in over 40 programs. Attention to each client's individual needs ensures they receive the highest quality care. Our children and adults are valued and appreciated as unique individuals and it is their personal goals and desires that keep us focused on our Mission.

BERT MULLER LEADERSHIP AWARD

PARC AWARD RECIPIENTS 2009 - 2010

COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR Tom Harrington VISIONARY OF THE YEAR Congressman C.W. Bill Young PHILANTHROPIST OF THE YEAR Tom & Mary James EDITH B. SMITH AWARD Wallace “Wally” Nickse COMMUNITY SERVICE AWARD Best Buddies Eckerd College Chapter COMMUNITY PARTNER OF THE YEAR Bright House Networks BERT MULLER LEADERSHIP AWARD Dave Lehman

PARC thanks these wonderful individuals, organizations and companies who continue to support the children and adults at PARC.

In many years at PARC, Dave Lehman, Director of Facilities and Maintenance, has seen a lot of changes and he has personally had a hand in many of them.

Arts Center, like the Hobby Shop and Beading Room. His architectural creations are functional but more importantly they create environments that are conducive for learning and personal growth for the individuals served at PARC.

“Seeing people benefitting from the enhancements we have been able to provide to PARC’s facilities is what makes this job worthwhile,” said Lehman.

Lehman also took the lead in directing a critical hazard mitigation project at the Bert Muller Home that ensures that 64 residents and their caregivers are safe if ever threatened by a hurricane or other disaster.

With a statement like that it is no wonder why Dave was chosen as the first recipient of the Bert Muller Leadership Award. Dave remembers wanting a diversion from drafting, which is the trade he formally studied for a career. He quickly found out that he was not going to enjoy the job when his supervisor gave him an office job in a cubicle. “It just wasn’t the right fit for me,” said Lehman and that is when he decided to join the PARC Team. The pride Dave takes in his work is obvious, and he enjoys seeing how the people PARC serves utilize adaptations to the facilities to bring out their true abilities. His favorite accomplishments are the themed build-outs in the Cultural

Beyond his ability to renovate and maintain PARC’s facilities, Dave is constantly thinking about the future and said, “Infrastructure is so important. We rely on a lot on the community and must think out of the box to stay modern and up-to-date.” Dave recognizes that generous donors and stakeholders in the community are crucial in allowing PARC to maintain the highest facility and maintenance standards. Most recently, Dave led the renovation of the Art Realization Technologies Room (A.R.T. Room), and transformed a windowless corner of PARC into a bright, cheerful place to learn and share. Lehman said, “We received a grant from the LARCs and one of the main things we wanted to do was brighten up the room.” In addition to new flooring and countertops, Dave installed an extra large window that makes the training room warm and inviting. I think we can all agree that Dave Lehman, PARC’s first recipient of the Bert Muller Leadership Award, has not only brightened our campus but also the lives of everyone PARC serves. The next time you see Dave rushing by you tell him thanks from all of us!

MEET THE ARTIST: LYNNE T. Lynne is a very independent minded woman who enjoys living on her own. Lynne is very self-sufficient when it is time to express her wants and needs. Lynne has been creating amazing works of art at PARC’s Fine Arts Studio & Gallery. She is the kind of artist who is the happiest when working in a series of artwork. She loves nature and animals and often this is the subject matter to her art. One recent work is an exploration of nature and all the characteristics involved. Lynne is a prolific and determined painter who prefers to keep her palette bright and her lines bold. She has recently taken part in 2011 Art in the PARC event and her nature designs are one of PARC’s top selling paintings.

Lynne works between abstraction and realism but always contains a multitude of colors and patterns with acrylic paint. In addition to her talents in visual arts, she also works with a teacher’s aide.

Lynne said, “I love my art and I want to keep it this way.” Some of her goals are to remain focused, work hard and be able to get a full time job in the community. With the assistance of the PARC Fine Arts Studio & Gallery instructors and artists, Lynne has learned a lot of other styles, techniques, and enjoys mixed media. Lynne said, “I am learning the processes of creative thinking and trying to overcome difficulty, coming up with new ideas on my own.”
