Monthly Marketing Update
- December 2019

I am thankful for many things this year, but the most important right now is that my husband is cancer-free!!! It was a long 10 months of surgery and treatment, but Lyman remained so strong, we would sometimes forget he was connected to a chemo pump. Additionally,  I am thankful for my staff, because this team never gives up and shows amazing resilience and strength without ever offering an excuse. I am thankful for all our sponsors who provide financial support to make our work possible. (Thousands of people use the guide, website, and network- but it is only possible because of a hundred generous individuals that sponsor). I am thankful for my friends and family who see my faults as strengths or just love me in spite of them. And I am thankful for past losses that afforded me the skills and faith to tackle new challenges.

On a work note- I am thankful that our new portal to report housing availability is FINALLY up and running. It can be viewed on the availability tab on Updates to housing profiles and current availability are best made directly on This service is free for ALL housing. Sponsors will be able to add pictures and additional contact links, but every housing community can iodate availability in real-time. Any case manager, family, patient, or provider can view your availability from any device- any time. Encourage others to start reporting now. With any new launch, we are working out the kinks daily.

I hope you have much to be thankful for and We wish you happy holidays.

Nuggets of Knowledge


"Adversity does not build character, it reveals it."
– James Lane Allen

Last month we hosted our 10 year work anniversary in Portland and took a few minutes to share "our story" with the sponsors that joined us to celebrate. As a small business owner, I am proud of many things, but most of all- I am proud of how our team has not just managed when things are challenging, but strengthened. We have adapted, adjusted and overcome.
