We opened our home in February 2016, but our organization’s history goes beyond that. Community members saw an unmet need and began planning in 2002, followed by incorporation in 2004 and 501(c)(3) determination in 2008. That’s when the founding group of volunteers raised the necessary funds to purchase, renovate, equip and landscape our home. Since then and with our community’s support, we have created better endings for hundreds of residents and families.
