Review for Southwinds, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My brother, David, has been a resident in one of Southwinds group homes since 1986. David moved in to his home when he was 24 years old. I was 21 and just transferred to a University. I had difficulties adjusting to being away from home and David and I spoke often. I will never forget his words of encouragement, "Barbie, if I can do it so can you!" AMEN TO THAT! David has THRIVED in his group home. He was given the opportunity of independence, pride and dignity. He met many new friends in the staff and client base. As the years have past, David has endured some major health restrictions. Southwinds and their extraordinary staff have met his needs with so much love and support. I, and my family, are so grateful to Southwinds, Inc. They have given David quality of life and my family a great peace of mind! They are priceless!
