Please join us in congratulating our September Host Home Providers of the Month, Edna and Darryl Pennington! Edna and Darryl have been Host Home Providers since December 2022 for the Pueblo Community Resources team which is part of the Support Inc. network. Edna has been part of Pueblo Community Resources direct care staff team since the inception of the company! She took a couple of years off and returned with her trademark sweet smile and generous heart when she was needed the most. They started as HHPs with 2 gentlemen in an existing home environment and then accepted a third individual in services just a few months later. During this time, they have excelled as providers, learned to use our system while settling into a new home. They live a little bit out of town, but still drive the men to different day programs, work commitments, counseling, and numerous medical appointments. Darryl has become very involved in the Special Olympics program as all 3 men are heavily committed to their sports. Darryl enjoys volunteering his time as a coach and recently worked with a team that built a large float for the Colorado State Fair Parade. Their float was awarded 3rd place out of 160 participating floats (see picture below)! Both Edna and Darryl enjoy stopping by Pueblo Community Resources Day Program to help serve everyone on hot lunch days and to connect with the people there. They are a bright spot in everyone’s day. Edna and Darryl provide their individuals in services with a family home setting that exceeds expectations. They are the definition of “People Helping People” and go above and beyond to support our individuals in services. We are so proud to see the progress the three men have made in their care and are excited to see their bright future. This is all thanks to the hard work of this amazing couple. Congratulations and thank you for all that you do, Darryl and Edna!!!
