Grace Church is proud of a partnership with Aspire that began in 2007 when Denise Koehnemann, a long time member of Grace, became ready as a full participant in the programs of Aspire, to begin working as a regular employee. Denise moved to Kentucky in 2009 but left a legacy of a very positive and productive partnership with the people at Aspire. Currently Pam Murray has carried the mantel of responsibility that was once carried by Denise. Pam is a strong member of the Grace Staff and brings joy and energy to the church each day she works. We encourage other churches and employers to consider employing men and women from Aspire.

In their own words, “Aspire is a leader in services for children and adults with developmental disabilities and their families. From infants to seniors, Aspire serves people with disabilities across their lifetimes. Our name – Aspire – best sums up our approach. We help our participants and their families to aspire to a world of possibilities.” See the Aspire web site for more information or call 708-547-3550.
