Donations: Barb McDowell Memorial Fund
The Barb McDowell Memorial Fund was established on June 2, 1999 in recognition of Barb McDowell. Barb served as Executive Assistant for the Jefferson County Commission for the Handicapped (now known as the JCDDRB) / Developmental Services of Jefferson County (now known as NextStep for Life, Inc.) from 1981 through 2000. During those 19 years, Barb coordinated the annual golf tournament. A portion of the golf tournament proceeds goes toward the fund. The fund provides individuals with developmental disabilities residing in Jefferson County with funds for special expenditures within a person-centered plan when complete funding is not available. A few examples of what has been funded include trips to Branson, clothing, haircuts, prom dress and other items that allow an individual to participate in activities that they would otherwise not be able to do. Individuals may reside in boarding homes, nursing homes, or their natural home environment.
Applications for funding may be requested by contacting your service coordinator or Mary McDowell, Executive Assistant, by phone at (636) 933-0244 or (636) 282-4400 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations to the fund may be made payable directly to the fund and forwarded to: P.O. Box 97, Mapaville, MO 63065.
