Below are comments from residents and family members who have experienced first hand the hope of CooperRiis.


Dear Don and Lisbeth Cooper,

My last day as a resident is today. I am writing to express my gratitude to the two of you for providing the vision and resources for CooperRiis. When I got here in October I was a mess. Most days all I could do was ruminate about all that was wrong in my life. Now it is different. I can walk with my head up with confidence and dignity. This is something I have not had the pleasure of doing my entire adult life.

With Love, Friendship, and Gratitude — Dan G.
