Our 3rd Anniversary!

Terry's House Blog Editor: January 11, 20142 Comments

Today is our 3rd Anniversary!!! Can you believe it?!

I am sure you are just as surprised as I am that it has already been three years since opening our home-away-from-home in 2011! Terry’s House continues to be full of wonderful families who are so grateful for this refuge across the street from Community Regional Medical Center. This year we’ve continued to work hard to provide for the 20 families staying with us each night and have often seen a waitlist of those in need of our services. We’ve grown together as a team and we continue to treat each family like one of our own. Our staff remains dedicated to providing for our families physical needs and they go above and beyond on a daily basis to ensure emotional and spiritual needs are being met and that our families have access to anything that may make this time in their lives just a little bit easier. That often means we call on our internal resources and our network of supporters and volunteers to help us meet those needs… A team that is always there to deliver!    

Terry's House has served nearly 2200 families since opening in 2011! I know you would be even more amazed to learn the great distances many of our families travel to support their loved ones… Something that wouldn’t be possible without Terry’s House. In just three short years we’ve served families from 42 of the United States and 19 foreign countries!   

We will never be able to say “THANK YOU” enough to those who believe in Terry's House and continue to support us both financially and through service! It takes an army and we have one of the best!

The future of Terry’s House is bright and we look forward to many more years serving the loved ones of our most critical patients at Community Regional. We feel truly blessed to be able to experience incredible generosity go to work for these families day after day.

Some of the wonderful things our guests said about Terry's House in 2013:

Is there any chance Terry's House will be able to expand at some point?

Happy Anniversary

I hardly know where to begin. When my son was injured in April 2013, I was 2300 miles away in Indiana. I knew I had to be at his side, but the idea of paying for a hotel room for days on end was daunting. Terry's House was an answer to prayer. The accommodations were beautiful, the staff was wonderful, so caring; Trina even allowed me to cry on her shoulder when I left. Then there was the opportunity to socialize with other residents, some of whom faced more grave circumstances than mine. From the bottom of my heart, I say thank you to Terry's House. Your kindness was more than I ever expected and was truly a blessing from God' for which I will be eternally grateful. Sincerely, Cheryl Love-Taylor
