New Computers Arrive on Campus!

The entire National Home campus is filled with gratitude toward all who contributed to our Technology Fund. Our entire campus now has brand new, up-to-date computers with high-speed internet access. Thank you for bringing us into the 21st century! Our old computers and printers got a lot of use, and were starting to break down. They ran very slowly, and about half of them relied on an operating system (Windows XP) that is no longer serviced or supported. Worse, the computers were simply outdated.

Celebrating Success!

The National Home's Community Celebration is an annual highlight in our community. Each year, residents, trustees, staff and guests gather in the Community Center auditorium to publicly recognize the academic and personal achievements our residents have attained during the past year.
