PCL HELPS PEOPLE:
Find jobs, make friends, have fun, enjoy life and have a great home of their choice.
My Home, My Life
Communities thrive when all members have a safe and comfortable home of their choice. PCL’s My Home, My Life fund directly benefits people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, empowering them to live in their own homes in the way they desire. Sometimes this means living alone, sometimes they share their house with people of their choosing. My Home, My Life was developed to help fund people’s ability to realize their desires and dreams to live the life they choose and one that makes the most sense for their individual needs. PCL needs YOUR help to make this basic quality of life a reality, because how people live matters.
Below are two stories of people who have benefited from gifts to the My Home, My Life fund.
Dennis from Salem
A STORY OF SUCCESS
Dennis (Denny) has been with PCL living his best life for a while. The job that Denny holds is important to him and to the people who benefit from his service. PCL has mail and items that need to go to people we support, and Denny comes to the main office weekday mornings with a DSP to pick up all of these items (there can be quite a few) before delivering them to the various homes with a smile. Denny rarely misses a day, and loves greeting people and making their day with the items he delivers.
Reena from Grants Pass
A STORY OF SUCCESS
In 2016 Reena moved out into her own apartment in Grants Pass with the help of the My Home, My Life scholarship. Reena is originally from Hawaii and loves learning about Hawaiian food and culture. She really enjoys getting out and spends a lot of time with her friends, going to movies, watching softball games and going to concerts in the park. She hopes to one day fulfill her longtime wish of becoming a dog owner.
