Help Joshua Bolt

Joshua is a brilliant, funny, and joyful ten-year-old! He reads, draws, writes poetry, solves math equations, creeps, climbs, and stacks things!

He also has a severe brain injury. His brain injury is commonly called cerebral palsy. The Bolt family is implementing an intensive home-based program of physical, intellectual, and social development for Joshua. This treatment program is prescribed by The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential (www.iahp.org).

The Bolts need fun-loving volunteers both to help and to play! There are even some projects you can help with from a distance.

FACES accepts volunteers on a limited basis from 7.30 to 11 a.m. Saturdays. If you are coming on Saturdays as a group of more than five people, please call the facility on Friday morning after 10 at 392-6277 first, as they often have too many volunteers on a Saturday.
