Sarah Lent

Who is in your family?

Mom Joanne; Dad Mike; Brother Eddie, with CHARGE; and me – a special education teacher.

What do you want people to know about your family?

If Eddie’s happy, everybody’s happy and we’re pleased that he seems happy in his group home.

Why do you volunteer with the Foundation?

I feel like I’ve grown up with the Foundation, attending every Conference since 2003. I’ve learned a lot along the way and would like to help other families, especially siblings. I volunteered at Sibshops at Conference as soon as I was old enough and became a certified Sibshops facilitator a few years ago.

What activities do you/your family like to do?

Visiting Eddie, especially when the weather is good and we can take him to the park, the beach, or for a ride on his bike.
