The late Patrick Kane who is a fixture in the Reston Community and whose legacy is seen all over the Reston area. He answered an ad in the paper to help establish an inclusive community where individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities can live.  He lived his motto, ”Why Not Today?” and he planted in the founder's thoughts, "why not Reston?" 

Patrick, a community planner who was instrumental in the development of Reston, ensured that it would be a place where everyone can live, regardless of race, creed, economic status, and it attracted resident pioneers with a keen sense if social justice. It was the place of the first Gabriel Home's dwelling and we remain here decades later.
