The ESH staff are among the most dedicated and lovely individuals I have ever had the pleasure of working with--and I have been working in the non-profit field for 10 years.

I would recommend getting involved in this organization to anyone and everyone!

The Elizabeth Stone House is an amazing organization helping its community. The Stone House works with each client to address their individual needs and establish an appropriate plan for treatment and/or rehabilitation. They realize the equal importance of safety, self-sufficiency and economic stability for clients' success. The children of adult clients also receive special care to treat the various traumatic experiences they have endured. Entire families benefit from the services of the Elizabeth Stone House.

I've been involved with Elizabeth Stone House for 20 years, serving as the external auditor. I've enjoyed watching ESH grow, expand and excel. We're very excited about the recent facility and program expansion project and highly respect the entire team at ESH.

As a public relations agency, we have worked with dozens of non-profit organizations and the Elizabeth Stone House ranks among the best. The staff of the Stone House is always thinks of the impact on its clients with every decision it makes. Every member of the staff that I have met is working together to make a difference in the lives of the families they serve. Watching the people they have served (primarily women) come back to help the organization and others in the community after they have been able to get their own lives back on track is proof the Stone House is truly impacting lives for the better.
