Review for Here to Serve Inc., Monrovia, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm a single mom with two grown daughters. We literally don't have any family in and around us. Just our local pastor and small church. My eldest daughter, Ria, took ill suddenly without warning with Neuromyelitis Optica, a rare neuro-autoimmune disease that damaged her brain and spinal chord. Left paralyzed and with cognitive difficulties. We met Katie right after the first attack in early Aug of 2012. Shortly, thereafter Ria had another NMO attack much worse and was admitted to UCLA Ronald Reagan in mid Aug 2012. We finally were able to come home in November of 2012. I was overwhelmed trying to hold down a full time job, care for my sick daughter and no one to help other than her younger sister who was also working. Katie and Lisa came to our home and offered Here to Serve services to us which was a godsend. Even though we took a different route for adult home care so we could keep working, Katie's resourches and outreach to us was so welcomed and greatly appreciated. I've been in touch with other non-profits since and I don't get the same warm genuine disposition that they truly care about my daughter's plight like Katie and Here to Serve does.

Here to Serve, is Katie O'Brien-Quintas' calling and passion. She is deserving of every #1 Non-Profit award available because she is #1 in our book!
