I first got involved as a donor many years ago when I served on the board of Horizon Homes, one of the two organizations that formed Mainstay, and then on the Board of Mainstay. Over all of those years, I felt strongly committed to the mission of the organization. It seemed logical to me that, in addition to my time commitment, I needed to financially support the organization. I have advocated for Mainstay since because I am convinced they are extremely committed to the clients they serve and to the employees that directly provide excellent care, which I have seen firsthand.
Private donations provide the little things that make a difference in these people’s lives. I have been inspired by the dedication of the direct care workers that serve our clients to help them grow, learn skills and increase their independence.
