January 30th, 2017
Hi! My name is Simone Gaspar and I’m the administrative assistant here at the House. As 2017 begins, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of the great things that took place last year. From a new website launch, to welcoming therapy rabbits to our pet therapy program, and most importantly serving every family that needed a place to call home, there has been so much positive change and growth. We are once again able to say that we did not have to turn a single family away in 2016, which is something we are all proud of and grateful for. We have also been especially fortunate in receiving a multitude of generous donations, making our House stronger than ever. Because of this, our House programs have been able to flourish, creating happy moments for our families!
With the New Year comes new resolutions. To some that means drinking more water, signing up for gym memberships, and attempts at becoming a shiny new “you.” But here at RMHC we want to turn 2017 into a brighter year for all of our families. Here are some of our staff’s New Year’s Resolutions.
