Sonia Ransom, our HR Director, grew up in Argentina. She brought Argentinian empanadas from her favorite Argentinian food truck guy for all our employees on Monday. Sonia is very particular about her empanada, and they were a big success with our globally diverse staff.
Wednesday, new Northaven resident, Sile (Gaelic for Sheila), played her harp in the hallway near the lobby. The music was wonderful and so calming to residents, who were waiting for their turn — 6 ft. apart — to enter one at a time into the Little Store, and also cheered residents and staff in the reception area. Sile plans to play in the hallways of different floors now and then.

Dear Darlene and Bill and Northaven --
We at Beacon Development Group recognize that you and your organization are on the front lines in the effort to mitigate the impacts of the coronavirus outbreak on low-income households in our communities. It is an honor to be your partner in the creation of affordable housing and we want you to know that during this uncertain time we are working diligently on ways to ensure that housing programs are there to assist our clients in furtherance of their housing goals. For now we want to provide support to your organization as you work with folks who need care and assistance in this time of crisis.
We have made a contribution of $750 toward your efforts. We can’t fully express our gratitude for your critical work.
From the Beacon leadership, board, and each one of our staff, THANK YOU.
With Sincere Gratitude -- Cindy and Brian

Northaven supporters Courtney and Andrew Storti sent teriyaki food for the whole staff one day. Then members of our Board of Trustees sent sandwiches from Jimmy Johns. Such thoughtfulness makes our staff feel supported.
Northaven supporters Cheryl and Eric Emmer donated a Nespresso maker and got Nespresso to donate another so our residents and staff can enjoy a Nespresso… one person at a time, of course.
Our staff has been devising ways to make life feel less isolated and constrained for our residents. They had a “warm cookie day,” bringing warm cookies to every resident. Another day every resident was visited with a doughnut. Our staff takes orders and grocery shops for our residents so they can remain safe at home.
