Ann's Place Sustainer Club
Every room at Ann's Place has stories. People who have cried, laughed, stretched, danced, painted, moved, played, hugged and talked in our rooms. We have nooks to hide away and big rooms to socialize. Each place is special and holds deep meaning for our clients.
Will you help us by adopting one of these unique, comforting spaces
and pledging a monthly gift?
Because of our volunteers, our building costs are only $75,000 a year. This maintains our beautiful 17,000 square foot facility - including repairs, electricity, cleaning, maintenance, heating/air conditioning, insurance and more. Sustainers can now become the lifeblood of Ann's Place by supporting the very energy that is poured into the building so programs are possible.
Leave A Message in a special space
We will place a message from you in the room you choose to sustain. You can leave an encouraging note for those who enter or write your note in honor/memory of someone you love.
