Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
The staff and clients of Anderson House are deeply saddened at the passing of our longtime friend and benefactor, Jan Schmidling. Jan came to Anderson House in December for our holiday party and to share the story of Anderson House's beginnings with our clients and volunteers. Jan will always be remembered for her secret bunny cakes at Easter, her wild boots and hats at the seafood festivals and her craft fairs but mostly for her staunch support and tireless work for women in recovery. She will be sorely missed. Helen McIntosh, Clinical Director, Anderson House, a Turning Point Program.
