Patricia Noel is no stranger to helping others in need. Whether it's servicing individuals challenged with substance abuse over a span of 15 years, to servicing Durham County as a Forensic Evaluator, or while working with children, adults and families as a clinical therapist, you can always find Trish in the trenches. Seeing the increasing need, in July 2020, Trish launched her private practice, Noel Integrated Services, Inc., assisting in the field of mental health. Trish also provides mental health services to students for the Durham Public Schools .
This time, however...
Trish and her family are the ones in need of help, a very uncomfortable place for someone who for years has dedicated her life to serving others.
Like most, the Noel Family looked forward to closing the door on the year 2020 with the global pandemic, COVID-19, and welcoming in a New Year.
Yet, on January 29, 2021, their world turned upside down, as if the continued pandemic, COVID-19 wasn't enough.
Trish and her family experienced a tragic house fire and were suddenly displaced with only the things on their backs. Currently, they are sheltered at a local hotel. Displaced are:
Trish (age 55)
Trish's mom (age 85)
Daughter (age 20)
Son (age 18)
The Noel Family is in need of all basic necessities such as food, toiletries, socks, shoes, coats, clothing, underwear, pajamas, computer (to serve her clients) but will eventually have the monumental task of rebuilding their lives where they will need (4 beds, bureaus, furniture, equipment, etc. ).
This fundraiser is organized and anchored in faith, care, concern, love and the extension of acts of kindness towards others.
Will you give?
Any and all financial blessings and prayers are greatly appreciated.
May you too be blessed through your blessing towards this family.
