Sabbatical Musings from Jim

Feb 12, 2013   //   by admin   //   Uncategorized  //  Comments Off on Sabbatical Musings from Jim

Last summer I had a unique opportunity.  I was granted a sabbatical from my post as Executive Director for three months.  I had no prescribed course to follow regarding furthering my education (although I did some of that) or advancing my professional career through researching other organizations or models of service (not much happened there).  I could set my own agenda, report to no one (sorry, that’s never true!) and focus my attention on very different pursuits of my own choosing.

Help commemorate Roundup Fellowship’s 40th Anniversary by sending in your favorite recipes. 

This will be our third cookbook! Our first two were wildly popular and still cherished by many today. We are looking for a variety of delicious favorites as well as recipes for our four-legged friends, potpourri, soap, play dough – any favorite recipe you would like to share. All proceeds from the cookbook will go to help Roundup Fellowship programs and services. We will be collecting recipes through the end of April and have the cookbooks ready in July 2013. We hope that the cookbook will reflect the love and hard work that all the volunteers, staff, families, and community members have for Roundup Fellowship clients. Read more >>

40 TagxedoWe trust everyone had an exceptional holiday season. We are sad but excited to see the year end as 2013 marks Roundup Fellowship’s 40th anniversary! It’s hard to believe that just 40 years ago a group of individuals met in effort to provide a better life for people with developmental disabilities and similar disorders to form what we now recognize as Roundup Fellowship.

We want to thank our supporters, clients, and self-advocates throughout the years for making what Roundup Fellowship is today. We have a plethora of events to celebrate Roundup Fellowship’s big birthday and would be honored to have you join us. Stay tuned for the details.

Fortune House had an amazing Christmas!

Dec 27, 2012   //   by admin   //   Uncategorized  //  Comments Off on Fortune House had an amazing Christmas!

Fortune House was overwhelmed by all the generosity of others. We received donations from neighbors, parents, the pharmacy, a GAL, and the lady that we found her lost purse, Mountain West Management, Baron Properties, Essex Financial Group and Essex Financial Servicing!

All the children were able to see some sort of family; some parents and family visited at Fortune, well others went one day passes, and overnight passes. The kids woke up to a breakfast meal of homemade waffles with fruit topping, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, eggnog, and orange juice. The night before some of the boys left letters for Santa and cookies. They were excited to see that he ate the cookies. All were very excited about their gifts. Fortune received many board games and it is definitely keeping the boys occupied. The boys will be working on Thank you letters this next week.

Santa drove up in a huge black pickup truck and a blond pony tail delivering a ton Christmas presents for Roundup Fellowship yesterday! Santa aka Pam Nilemo delivered presents for every Roundup Fellowship resident and house all sponsored by Mountain West Management, Baron Properties, Essex Financial Group and Essex Financial Servicing!

Christmas is coming, and it is time again for our annual Christmas Gift Drive at Roundup Fellowship. At Roundup, we are committed to seeing that each of our clients has a happy and full life, and that includes having a good Christmas!

Roundup Fellowship provides services and supports to more than 100 people with developmental disabilities in Denver and Colorado Springs areas. Through residential teaching homes, community-based vocational programs, and a school/day treatment setting, Roundup provides a variety of safe, nurturing, learning environments for people who might otherwise be candidates for institutionalization.

The Christmas Gift Drive is a great opportunity to share the spirit of Christmas with those who have not been as fortunate in life. There are a variety of ways to help. You may want to shop personally for some of the items on our clients’ wish lists. Give us a call and we will be happy to match you up with gift ideas that fit your budget. Also, our group homes would appreciate the donation of hams and turkeys for their holiday dinners. Cash donations are always welcome, and should be designated for use in the gift drive.

Roundup Fellowship has been a lifesaver for my family!

Sep 6, 2012   //   by admin   //   Uncategorized  //  Comments Off on Roundup Fellowship has been a lifesaver for my family!

I can honestly say that without them, I have no idea what my son’s future would have been. I had adopted my son Jamey when he was 11 years old and I only had a small glimpse of the “special needs” that he had. A few months after the adoption Jamey’s emotional and behavioral problems increased beyond what I was able to handle. I was getting calls daily from the school about issues they were having with his behaviors. I was unable to find before or after school care for him, while I was working. I found places that either addressed his special needs or his behavioral problems but not both. At home Jamey also struggled, safety became an issue and the police had to be called on several occasions to intervene.

After 3 stays in the hospital and Dr’s telling me that Jamey was not safe at home, I was completely lost. Read more >>

Roundup’s Road Trip to South Dakota

Aug 21, 2012   //   by admin   //   Uncategorized  //  Comments Off on Roundup’s Road Trip to South Dakota

On the road…

Last week I accompanied eight clients to the Black Hills of South Dakota. For four days and three nights we had the opportunity to experience some amazing sites and learn about the rich history of the area. As a staff member it was both extremely exhausting and unbelievably rewarding.

After a six hour van ride we spent the first night discovering the town of Keystone. We enjoyed dinner at a local pizza parlor and explored souvenir shops. The second day was busy! Read more >>
