Tom Bartholomew’s son Sam, 27, has an intellectual disability due to a congenital brain malformation. Luckily, Sam’s family was introduced to Community Homes when he was in high school. Since 2017, Sam has lived as rich and meaningful a life as you could want, working at Microsoft, excelling at Special Olympics sports, and living in a Community Homes-supported house with an amazing caregiver and two of his best friends. He makes a wicked risotto. Tom joined the Community Homes board of directors in 2016 and has served as its president since 2018.
