Ann Paty (‘13) is currently employed at InJOY Life Resources, a day program for adults with mental and physical disabilities. InJOY is a local organization that was founded in 2007. While studying Psychology at Biola, Paty discovered deep compassion and love for the marginalized. Her desire to help people led her to become a coach at the program. The coaches help the members practice daily life-skills; further integrating them into society.
Last year she moved up and became a full-time program supervisor, and finds her job to be fun and rewarding. While at Biola, Paty learned that God puts great importance on all His children. "People are deeply valuable to the heart of God, and should therefore also be valuable to us," she said. "To be faithful in small things, and fully present in relationships". The program emphasizes the need to treat all of God's children as equals and as worthy of care and love. InJOY is a popular organization amongst the Biola community and offers great serving opportunities. To learn more, visit InJOY Life website.
