“Dear Pay-It-Forward House, thank you soooo much for letting us stay here. It was awesome!!! All of the volunteers are so nice!! I hope I can see you all again soon. Thanks again for everything” Silvia P – 10 years old from Cape Cod, MA

I am here visiting my brother who is in Kindred after a head injury. The Kindred staff let me know that PIFH was available. It was truly a blessing, very convenient and economical, allowing us to stay a whole week when, otherwise, we could only have afforded a couple of days. Visiting an injured loved-one is stressful, but having the extra time made the long trip from Charlottesville, VA much less hectic. I believe that made my time with my brother more meaningful that in turn, benefitted him greatly. PIFH is a beautiful, comfortable place and the staff and volunteers were most cheerful, kind and supportive. Thank you so much.” Patrick Riley

“This place is beyond wonderful! Patrick, granddaughter Silvia, and I felt at home here – relaxed and less stressed. Being able to visit Pat’s 79 year old brother several times a day since he was across the street was so helpful. When he fell asleep, we simply walked back over here, and enjoyed the homemade cookies and perked ourselves some coffee.

All the volunteers are so welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed chatting with all of them. I’m home-schooling 10 year old Silvia and we were able to continue with her schoolwork downstairs in the lovely family room. The wifi also helped us keep in touch with our family members back home in Virginia and Cape Cod. Having food available too was also a blessing. We can’t thank you enough for helping us through this very difficult time. God bless you all. “ Nancy

“I am a minister of God’s holy word, I truly can state today, that the hand of God has ordained an experience the Pay-It-Forward House that is lodged into my memory banks forever. Each day was more positive than the one before. Testimonies by people that work, volunteer, and live in this blessed place is nothing short of miraculous. Thanks be to God for the people he has put in the path of me and my family, gratitude is an understatement for the provisions, extension of fellowship and lifelong bonding have not gone unnoticed. Your staff are to be commended for their tireless effort! I pray to God for strength, protection, and a covering for you all. A place like this is a home away from home. I can hardly contain my emotions and heart-felt feelings about this God-guided facility. I cannot thank those involved enough for this priceless experience. I will Pay It Forward, in Jesus name, Amen.” WW
