Friedman Place is a resident-centered organization, which means in part that we are partners with residents and follow their lead in designing programs and services. In this case, a group wanted an old-fashioned water balloon fight.

Yesterday residents met with a new volunteer, Boo-the mini Sheepadoodle and his handler, long-time volunteer Mike Gregg. The day was a "Bootiful" day to play catch, give treats and have a little conversation with Mike. For a some residents this was the first time they experienced the shady and relaxing "Three Sisters Fountain" terrace!

Please pray that ALL of our tests come back negative(stating that we do not have the coronavirus) so that maybe(WISHFULL THINKING HERE) some day we could have all of you back here visiting us and, doing the activities that you do for and, with us because WE MISS ALL OF YOU!!!!!!!!

I hope this ok to share.
I was recently informed by the Director Of Nursing here at Friedman Place that one of the main reasons that my fiancé of 6 years, James Eenignburg, is being restricted when he comes here and is also being denied to move here is that Alexander Brown has accused James of being abusive towards me. That is absolutely false. What can be done to rectify this situation?
Thank so much for having me for Black History Month!
