My favorite part of Los Angeles Habilitation House is donating! Why? Because each time I donate, I freely say yes to supporting a cause that helps address peoples true needs. Not just physically, but spiritually too! This is what is lacking in current US Government programs to help our outstanding Veterans. Not because the Government isn't trying hard enough, they do. Instead because this is something a government can't provide. So I gladly donate to LAHH! I've personally witnessed the change they have made. And I feel great doing so!

My husband and I have come to know this non-profit organization through friends few years back. We like to read their monthly newsletter which is full of their employees uplifting stories. It is evident that LAHH not only offers a job, but also a "home" to these employees who have been left out by the society. We met several times the two founders, Guido and Nancy, and hope to see them again soon. We are moved and grateful to collaborate with LAHH through our donations. Chiara

I had the good fortune to visit the offices of the Los Angeles Habilitation House last May to interview the directors. This venture is unique in that the focus is on helping some individuals holistically, who have been challenged by disability, to be successful at their work, which in turn impacts their lives with family and friends. The clients are accompanied day by day in this positive experience of work. For people, change requires an intensive labor, not a quick fix, and to me LAHH exemplifies this endeavor beautifully.

In a city full of vanity non-profits which seek to raise money for pet-causes or to proclaim a message, LAHH stands out as an employer interested in the potential of the human person.

I have known Guido and Nancy for several years and worked with them both before they started this organization. They both left good paying and important positions in the business world to pursue something that was more meaningful and closer to their hearts. I admire that and think this shows how dedicated, unselfish and committed they are. That's a rarity in this world of "me, me, me." I have watched this organization grow from day one and am so proud of the successes they have had in a relatively short period of time. The entire group are all so dedicated to their mission and I'd like to see them continue to grow.
