Brad gives Richard a hug after Richard’s win Jan. 21, 2015. Though it is not usually to his advantage, Brad often gives shot advice to his friends. On a good night, Brad, Rocky, and Richard get to shoot two games, though often because of scheduling problems, they only get one in. Though they may prefer to play longer, it’s good just to get out and play. “I love it,” Richard says.
For Stonebelt clients and many people with special needs, life can be a revolving door of changing faces. Bruce says the turnover rate for Designated Support Professionals (DSPs) can be quite high . Twenty to thirty percent of DSPs leave in the first three months of work at Stonebelt, which falls below the national average. “It can be extremely difficult, especially for the clients that we serve, to have so many new faces coming in and out,” Bruce explains. This is what makes Man’s Night all the more amazing and important. No matter who takes them, Brad, Rocky, and Richard can always count on Wednesday night with friends.
