What Our Families Say

We are commemorating the 5th anniversary of Evelyn's House, and we'd love for you to join us. 

Since the first guests arrived at Evelyn's House, staff members continue to paint small rocks with words and symbols representing unique and memorable aspects of each guest and the impact they had on the team, and place them in the meditation garden. This process gives staff members a chance to honor the lives of their past patients and prepare to care for those yet to come. 

In recognition of the fifth anniversary, we invite you to share your story and "place your rock." Whether it is to thank a caregiver for the care provided, a message of hope and encouragement for others, or to share a fond memory of a loved one, we would be honored to hear from you. 

Share your story today.
