Joyce Chapman has certainly made her mark on the Greater Des Moines community - both from a business and civic perspective. Joyce retired from West Bank at the end of 2006 after a career of 35 years and continues to serve on its board of directors. She is a well-known community figure, having served on numerous committees and boards of directors over the years. And now, she is making her mark at On With Life. By contributing to the organization's Endow Iowa Fund*, Joyce has invested in the future of brain injury rehabilitation.
"I've known about On With Life for many years and watched its quality work with its persons served - one of whom I knew personally," Joyce said. "I sent a donation because of my initial impression and then enjoyed reading of client successes through the heartwarming articles in Headway. I finally took a personal tour of the facility and was totally impressed with the services and excellent outcomes. It is a positive place with bright and cheery décor, is a wonderfully maintained facility and most importantly, staff members have a 'can do' attitude and skills to match."
Joyce noted how impressed she is with On With Life's national reputation for its exceptional services and outcomes, yet she said central Iowa is lucky to have such a wonderful local resource.
"My donations continue because these services are important and making a difference in the quality of life of the persons served," said Joyce.
