WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE OUR EXPANSION PROJECT IN BASALT. PATRICKS PLACE WILL BE A NEW ADDITION TO OUR DROP-IN CENTERS AND BRING OUR SERVICES TO THE MID VALLEY.
In Memory of
It is my mission to create a resource for youth and teens in Basalt to support them in their development. Patrick’s Place, named after my 15-year old son who committed suicide on November 3, 2017, will be that resource. Patrick was not the classical case of a suicidal teen who exhibited signs of depression or other mental health issues. This tragedy stunned our family, his fellow students, and the community. With the appropriate professional support and awareness, I believe that our youth struggling with life’s many challenges should not go undetected or unsupported.
I have partnered with Kristin to establish Patrick’s Place. Patrick's Place will be Stepping Stones,
newest drop-in center in Basalt. The drop-in center will utilize Stepping Stones existing program model to provide mentoring and services to local youth and families in the mid-valley region. The drop-in center will be open weekdays and offer activities on weekends to provide youth and young adults with a safe place to gather, recreate, support one another, have consistent access to critical adult mentors and create their own community.
Thank you for your consideration. Together we can make Patrick’s Place a reality. Please call us at (720.207.7646 with any questions or reach out to us at email@example.com.
