Pat Ede and her huband David have been working with Youth Horizons in Manukau for 11 years – making them one of the organisation’s most experienced couples.
Support workers say Pat and David are universally liked by those who stay with them. Young people feel they have a cheerleader in Pat – and the couple’s approach helps bring about meaningful change.
Pat and David support children and young people through the most challenging of behaviours – refusing to give up even when they’re being tested in the most confronting ways.
Described as having a wicked sense of humour with a no nonsense approach, Pat helps mentor new caregivers, and even some of the Youth Horizons staff.
