The High Country Charitable Foundation, Inc.

Yes - we are this desperate! Can you HELP? Our residents at Rock Haven and HospHouse - to say nothing of people coming to get food boxes from our pantry or a meal in our kitchen - are having a very difficult time getting in and out.

Many people with physical disabilities RELY on us for food and housing - we REALLY need some help - the shovels just aren’t cutting it in our driveways and parking lots.

If you are able to help - email facilities manager Jordan Duke
