Nathan Burkholder gives local agency a hand!


Lift Up Springfield is a Medical and Dental Mission clinic that exists to provide basic health and dental services to the underserved of our community. Their mission is, “to serve and care for our neighbors in need. To get rid of the red tape and get down to the business of providing good old fashioned care and compassion. To selflessly serve and to unconditionally love our neighbor.”

We are proud to support the efforts of Lift Up Springfield.

In October, while working to expand their clinic, a permit/building code issue caused their momentum to halt. Dr. Tricia Derges, who founded the organization, put out a plea via social media and word of mouth for an architect to help.

One firm reached out with a $2,500 fee to help. Word eventually made it to our own, Nathan Burkholder. Nathan talked with Brad Erwin to confirm details and commit to providing the service for FREE. Here at Paragon Architecture we strive to make a positive impact in our community. The mission and goals of Lift Up Springfield align with our passion for serving.

Below is a link to the recent article about the opening of the new facility.
Congratulations, Dr. Derges and the entire Lift Up crew for working to serve the needs of our community!
