“It has been life changing for our family having Dad attend Altrusa House. Mom has been able to get quiet personal time and we were able to finish building our house.”
“Last Friday when the doors opened and in marched the Military contingent with all of you joining in to sing Happy Birthday, it was an unbelievable and emotionally moving experience. All of your hugs and cards and photos and good wishes made it such a very special day for Don! And the beautiful and delicious cake and punch and the balloons added the finishing touch. We are so pleased to be a part of Altrusa House and to share the thoughtful and caring atmosphere that prevails. Don feels very close to you all and is happy to have you as friends. He will treasure this very memorable day but he wants you to know that everyday with you brings him joy. We thank you very much.”
