Reflections of Bill Pape on the 25th Anniversary Year of Sheffield Place

As Sheffield Place begins its 25th year of service, it's appropriate to share the reflections of the Rev. Bill Pape who founded the agency, which opened in 1991.  Throughout the anniversary year, other voices - volunteers, clients, community members - will share their experiences as well.  If you would like to contribute your perspectives, please contact

"I would like to thank you all for the opportunity and the many others I had over the years of starting with Sheffield Place years ago.

It definitely was a new way of doing things that we had to reach out to at the time. Many people worked  and helped us to make it an opportunity that  allowed us to be doing many things, that still even today, will continue to go into the future tomorrow!

I know that you at Sheffield Place will continue to do what you have been doing - But, I ALSO KNOW you will also go on helping people in need.  GOD BLESS!"     BILL PAPE
