New Board Member Offers a Lot of Related Experiences
Patrick Cody was born and raised in Sacramento County and has lived in South Natomas for the past 25+ years. He spent his professional career in the United States Post Office and worked for many years at General Delivery. General Delivery is where many of our unhoused residents receive mail and he got to know many of them and their stories.
Patrick and his wife took care of his aged mother for many years at their home. Shortly before her death, she was placed in a hospice facility to receive the care she needed. Patrick is aware of the many homeless in our area and that many are ill and the importance of getting proper care and comfort when suffering from a terminal condition. He sees Joshua’s House as a compassionate place to help our neediest residents.
Along with being on the Board, Patrick and his wife plan to volunteer at Joshua’s House to assist in any way possible. This may include Patrick’s other role of being the official Santa Claus for the annual Natomas Christmas Tree Lighting. Many of the Joshua’s House residents may appreciate getting a special visit from Santa when December rolls around.
