Patricia & Bill Kendrick

Agency Owner's/Director's | Direct Support Professional's | Employment Specialist's

We decided to open DD & MH Provider of Oregon because I have served the DD/ID community for 10 years as an Independent Contractor and wanted to give more to my beautiful community of Sandy Oregon. Since June of 2017, we have been able to help Sandy Activity Night grow into a community resource that offers supports, services, and skills in order give people the tools to contribute to their community on all levels. We appreciate our community supporters, our Team, and the people we serve, without you, we would not be who we are!

Hello there! My name is Autumn. Although I am new to DD and MH provider of Oregon I have been a
DSP for about 4 1/2 years. I enjoy reading, movies, thrifting and crafting, outdoor adventures and
anything that involves being active.
I have experience assisting customers with activities of daily living such as learning how to cook and
clean safely, learning to grocery shop efficiently, maintaining personal hygiene and health etc. It’s such a
reward to witness my customers achieve their goals to become more independent. I’m happy to help
customers become more integrated in the community by locating activities of interest and building
lifelong connections with others.
I also have experience locating low-income/ affordable housing and maintaining waiting lists for those
who wish to live independently in the future. I can provide support to maintain housing while
incorporating life skills training.
I understand how important it is having a provider available to support development in these areas. In
every aspect of care I strive to create experiences centered on the customers’ values, hopes and dreams
to help live a more fulfilling, healthy life.

Hello my name is Hannah Kilbury.  I am 22 years old and have been married for almost 4 years and we have a baby girl that just turned 1.   I got into caregiving because growing up my mother was very sick and caregiving just became second nature to me.
I find great fulfillment in helping others and feel there is no greater joy than watching someone achieve goals and gaining their independence.  I strive to bring people joy, love and happiness in their every day lives.
Outside of work I love being a wife and a mother.  I also enjoy church activities, playing the piano, singing, hiking, camping, fishing, working out, riding bikes, going on walks, bowling, lazer tag, hanging out with family and friends, having BBQs, hosting game nights and just over all having good clean fun.
A day with me looks like…working on morning hygiene skills, food prep and meal planning, cooking, working on chore skills, hanging out, money management, doing activities, going shopping, going to the different parks and events going out in the community, working on OT and PT, etc.  
I prefer to work in Sandy, Welches, Boring, Damascus, Clackamas and Gresham.
