Patrice Gives Back

In the spirit of love and community today is the day to talk about giving back. When you look at the definition of “give back” in the dictionary it states, to provide help or financial assistance to others in appreciation of one’s own success or good fortune. This is exactly the mindset of our founder and CEO Patrice. She has taken her knowledge and success and given it back to the community. She is passionate about many organizations and today we are going to highlight the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.


This organization’s mission is to honor the sacrifice of Stephen Siller, a firefighter who laid down his own life to save others on September 11, 2001. They honor our military and first responders who are disabled veterans that are injured or killed in the line of duty and their families.

The Smart Home Program is for catastrophically injured veterans returning from war. These smart homes are created mortgage free and with top-of-the-line technology so the heroes can regain their independence. Each custom home is made with automated doors and lighting, wider halls and doorways for wheelchair accessibility, and height accommodations for kitchen cabinets and appliances. There is a backup generator and heating and cooling controlled by a tablet.

The Gold Star Families are families that carry the legacy of the fallen heroes. The Tunnel to Towers Foundation honors their memory by taking care of the spouses with young children by paying off their remaining mortgages. This allows the spouse to focus on the children and not the financial burden.

There are many ways to participate in this great mission. You can donate, fundraise, or sponsor. A great way to get out and be involved is joining one of their  National Run, Walk & Climb Series. These have expanded to over 80 events across the country. The mission is to Never Forget September 11, 2001.

When a community is united in LOVE we can never fall. Please join Patrice and Tunnel to Towers to give back. For veterans who are looking for their next career Patrice and Associates offers an exciting franchise opportunity where you can continue to serve your local community. We offer a 10% discount on the franchise fee to help veterans get into business.


What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Allison Sullivan was amazing! 

    She found my resume online and reached out to me. I had been in the market looking for the right next step in my career for several months and had been receiving calls daily from different recruiters so I didn’t expect anything magical to occur overnight. Allison called me, we chatted quickly about my work experience and she advised me she thought I’d be perfect for a client she was working with….and literally the next day I got a call for an interview with the client. The day after the interview, I was immediately offered a position consulting on insurance claim management. Allison was checking in with me each step of the way and made the transition from unemployed to working at a career I’m excited about in no time at all! I cannot thank her and Patrice & Associates enough for all their help!

  • I am very thankful for Liz Costa.

    She was kind, informative, and very encouraging during the process of applying, interviewing, and finally accepting the position once it was offered to me. I have worked with several recruiters before and Liz was the most friendly and professional at the same time. She made me feel comfortable and also made me feel confident during the interview process. After only a few weeks, I now consider Liz a friend and would certainly recommend her to anyone who is in the looking in the labor market. Thank you Liz, I appreciate you as a person and a professional.

  • Jonathan Litt set me up for success!

    I am truly excited to start this new journey at this restaurant. I can honestly say I don't think I would have been able to pull this off without Jonathan Litt's help. He was more than professional but at the same time he was authentic and explained everything I needed to do to make things work. He definitely set me up for success. My confidence level wasn't what it used to be, but with his help he made me believe in myself. He encouraged me and believed in me as well. I will never forget his efforts. My appreciation for his work and dedication will always be remembered. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this process. I am forever grateful.

    Thank you again,

    I love it at my new career and picture my future here. Rick was awesome in helping me choose where I need to be and how I had to get there. It took a lot of interviews and me turning jobs down because it wasn’t a fit for me. At my new career I’m in the right place!
