Featured Faces – Meet Tom
Tom has lived at Echoing Hills Community Living of Northeast Ohio for six years. A warm hello and a charming smile greet you when meeting Tom. He has a lot to share and turns every interaction into a great conversation!
What Three Words Would Describe You?
Kind, Funny, and Smart.
What Are Your Hobbies and Interests?
I like going out into the community, especially to stores. In the summer, I enjoy playing in the Dream League.
I also enjoy making rocking chairs out of clothespins. My brother used to make them, and I learned how too!
Where Do You Find Encouragement?
My church is a place of encouragement. I attend a class each Sunday and enjoy making new friends there. I am also encouraged by my workshop, TWI. At TWI, I help sort papers to prepare for shredding. Today, I handled nine pounds of paper!
What Do You Believe Are Your God-Given Talents?
I can do many things with only one hand. Things that others may not be able to do. I make my rocking chairs one-handed, and when I had a manual wheelchair, I controlled it with only one hand.
How Do You Inspire Others?
Making others smile and laugh is the way I inspire people.
What Is Your Favorite Thing About Echoing Hills?
I enjoy the staff and people I live with. We have a great time together and enjoy doing things like playing games. We play Uno a lot. Tonight, we all made dinner and dessert (strawberry cheesecake) together.
Featured Faces is a way to get to know some of the individuals that make Echoing Hills so special! As we focus on those we serve and the team members that serve them, we will also focus on our 2022 theme – Encourage, Believe, Inspire.
We invite you to reflect on these three words and think: What can I do to encourage others? How do I believe my God-given talents can change the world? How can I let my words and actions inspire someone today? You may notice you are changing someone’s life, maybe even your own!
