Review for BELLO MACHRE INC, Glen Burnie, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As parents of a profoundly disabled son, our involvement with Bello began before it became the wonderful entity that it has grown to be. It was a dream when the only available resources in the very early 60’s were the Health Dept. and state institutions. The need was so great and the civic response so large that Bello Machre was built in 1972 as a campus program with seven cottages, our son being one of the first clients to be served. Bello has always maintained a very committed Board of Directors (of which I served for ten years) and has placed the welfare of their clients first and foremost. My husband and I, and our son’s two siblings, could not have placed his care for almost 38 years in a setting that did not meet his needs, both emotionally and physically. Bello was pivotal in our ability to raise our children responsibly, pursue careers, maintain a loving home environment, and still be involved with our son, his program, his caregivers, and decisions regarding his health and well-being. In short, we owe more to Bello than we can possibly give back.

Role:  Donor & We are included in the long list of founding fathers of Bello, and have worked for years supporting this cause.
