"Disgust," said Steve Ristow, when asked about his first reaction to hearing about the story.
Ristow is executive director of Quiet Waters Outreach, a Tigard facility that specializes in helping the developmentally disabled and their families.
"It's heartbreaking to me that anyone would take advantage of this special and vulnerable population," he said.
"They're quick to trust other people," added Ristow. [cached]
This week, three "treasures" came, along with a few family members, two volunteers, the Blazers, the Blazers' two young sons and Quiet Waters Executive Director Steve Ristow.
According to Ristow, the original purpose of Tuesday's Treasures was to provide families with a respite, even if only for an hour and a half."These are places where people care, and the volunteers view them as equals," Ristow said of the involved churches, which boast about 400 participants in all.
"It's about breaking down the walls of fear and building relationships.And really giving families a break from their responsibilities."
Ristow and his wife started Quiet Waters Outreach in 1997 with the intention of providing support services for developmentally disabled persons, their families and their caregivers.
"There are about 60,000 people with disabilities in Oregon, and we're ranked the second worst in the nation in providing support," he said.
Ristow grew up with an adopted sister who suffered from fetal alcohol syndrome."There was very little support for my family, and it made a big impact on me - seeing my mom just burn out," he said.
"The numbers we're serving are so minimal to the numbers out there," Ristow said."But you just start small and work your way along."
