On February 1, 1981 we opened our doors for the first time to nine families after securing a home on Irving Street. A dental student and his wife moved into the apartment above the garage to be house managers in exchange for free rent. Volunteers ran the house operations until 1995 when the first staff member was hired. The rest is history; a rich and compassionate web of people giving back and making space for children and their families during their deepest time of need.
Throughout 2021, we will be sharing more about our history, our community of supporters and volunteers, and those we serve.
