Stories of Care. Of Inspiration.
I’ve always been impressed with the help Will is getting at Tanager, and I’m so grateful that you go out of your way to include the rest of our family, as well. There are so few people we can talk to about what’s going on in our family, and the work you do is really valuable in helping families like ours know that we’re not alone, and there’s a semblance of “normal” in what we’re going through, and that there is hope for the future.
Tanager Place helped me to deal not only with day-to-day events, but also taught me to improve my overall attitude, put my life into perspective and to increase my sense of self-worth.
Our grandson, Chase had spent about six months at Tanager. We were very happy with the treatment he had received. We can see a very positive difference in him. I have to admit, it was very hard for us to see him go there, but we knew he needed help. The staff at Sinclair Cottage was very good with Chase. We were impressed on how the staff interacted with the children. Thank you again for all of Tanager’s help in making our grandson a better person
We are proud to be a part of the following organizations:
