Happy Ending:
A Nice New (Used) Van Replaces Our Stolen Van

Thanks to many generous donors, and a settlement check from the insurance company, we were able to raise $28,000 to replace our stolen 2006 Dodge Caravan with a very nice 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan.

We want to give a shout-out to the supporters who responded to our appeal, and most especially: Ken Beck, Tom Beck, Phil Bullock, Tom Servino, Zaven Khachadourian, Gayle Etienne, and Lorraine and Pete Strassman. Thank you so much!

Renee Brose (Day Program Coordinator) and Bill Coker (Director of Operations) show off our new van​!
