Patrick Garcia, President/CEO
Patrick Garcia Pat Garcia knows what it's like to live away from your family. The New Mexico native moved to Boys Town when he was eight years old because his mother couldn't take care of him and his brother. However, growing up in Boys Town inspired him to help other kids like him: kids whose families couldn't take care of them or didn't want to or kids who just didn't have a family. As of January 1, 2013, Garcia is the president and CEO of Epworth Village. While he doesn't notice a difference, Garcia said that he has had people tell him that they believe his experience as a student at Boys Town comes out in the way he works with kids. "What people have said to me is that I'm more understanding and more patient because I can relate better with the kids to a certain extent," he said. "At least, that's what people have told me." After graduating from Boys Town, Garcia attended the University of Nebraska Omaha where he received a Bachelor of Science in Human Development and the Family. He also received his Master's Degree in Human Service from Bellevue University. He is currently serving as an adjunct professor at Bellevue University and teaching classes in human service and clinical counseling. Garcia and his wife worked together at Boys Town as family teachers for 10 years before he decided that he wanted to start looking into work in an administrative position. Garcia was soon hired at Omaha Home for Boys and over the next 14 years, he was promoted from case manager to program manager and eventually became the director of youth and family services. It's long been a dream of him and his family to move to a rural area, Garcia said. "I love driving tractors and farm animals and all of that," he said. "It's been my wife's and my passion to move into a rural area." Garcia has four children ages 23, 20, 17 and nine. April McDaniel, president of the Epworth Village Board of Directors, said that the board is pleased with the choice of Garcia. "The Board is pleased to welcome Pat Garcia to the Epworth Village family," McDaniel said. "Epworth Village has an exciting future, with Pat at the helm," Kleinschmidt said. "Pat (Garcia) leads with integrity and intention, and his expertise and knowledge in programming for challenged youth is going to serve the Village well. York is very fortunate to have Pat, his wife Lisa and family join the community and continue advocating for our youth."
