‘Just unconditional love’ – Barbara Bush’s 1989 DC AIDS-hospice visit changed the HIV conversation

In honor of former "First Lady" Barbara Bush... Here is a picture and article documenting her 1989 visit to TERRIFIC, Inc.'s Grandma's House.

Most of the accolades pouring in for former first lady Barbara Bush, who died Tuesday at 92, center on her role as the matriarch of a powerful American political family. But a few people in the D.C. area are pointing to an act of grandmotherly humanity as her defining moment.

Our Story

TERRIFIC, Inc., an acronym for the Temporary Emergency Residential Resource Institute for Families In Crisis, Inc., founded in 1975 by the Reverend Debbie Tate and a group of caring volunteers, is a community-based, internationally-recognized, non-profit housing and human service organization. Its mission is to meet the bio-psychosocial needs of “Families in Crisis” (groups of people who share similar bio-psychosocial economic challenges that impede their access to care, resources and quality life). TERRIFIC, Inc. believes that all persons, regardless to age, sex, bio-psychosocial economic status, race or religion should have access to safe, clean affordable housing and complimentary support services.

TERRIFIC, Inc. has received national and international recognition and media coverage for quality services and unique program prototypes. Our programs have been visited and supported by dignitaries including the Late Princess Diana, First lady Barbara Bush, Madam Museveni of Uganda, and by celebrities Patty LaBelle, Sugar Ray Leonard, Daryl Green and many others.

As the parent organization, TERRIFIC, Inc. operates several diverse housing, residential care and human service programs. Notably, TERRIFIC, Inc. is the D.C. Office on Aging Disability Resource Center (ADRC) for Ward One, Two and Four residents who are 60 years old and older. TERRIFIC, Inc. ensures the full range of DCOA-funded services designed to meet the complex and ever-changing needs of seniors. TERRIFIC, Inc.’s ADRC Senior Service Programs plan and deliver direct services to older adults and their families (Meals, Nutrition Education, Health Promotion and Counseling Services, Case Management, Recreation and Socialization Services, etc.). TERRIFIC, Inc.’s goal is for seniors to age in place while living vibrant and active lives.
