For 2+ months, 19 caregivers and I lived and worked in our home. This sacrifice kept our residents safe through our local COVID surge.​
 
Also, to help pay extra appreciation to our “bubble” staff, I spent $250,000+ from my savings, and charitable donors gave $215,000+.
 
Thank you to our heroic on-site caregivers and donors!
