Dear Noah Homes Board of Directors,
Congratulations on being a champion for the developmentally disabled in the Stale of California and for your unyielding commitment to making our world a better place. As Vice Chair of the Senate Health Committee, I can tell you that Noah Homes is widely recognized as a leading provider of services for the developmentally disabled and is held in high regard throughout our great state.
With Alzheimer’s disease on the rise, I understand there is an enormous need i n San Diego County to meet the health care needs of the aging developmentally disabled population. It is no surprise that Noah Homes has once again risen to the challenge that our region i s facing. Your plan to build two new homes that will serve as Alzheimer’s units is yet another demonstration of your leadership and willingness to step up and meet our community’s critical need.
Knowing that East County San Diego will be home to the first Alzheimer’ s facility exclusively for adults with developmental disabilities in California, and may well be the first of its kind in the nation, makes me proud to represent you.
Over the last seven years, I have personally witnessed Noah Homes’ tremendous growth and development under your leadership. It has been an honor to work with you over the years. and to recognize the vital work of your organization to serve developmentally disabled adults. All that you do provides your residents with a comforting home environment, and fulfilling and enriching l i re experiences.
Please know that I will continue to support your work to serve the developmentally disabled by advocating on their behalf in Sacramento. Thank you for your service to Noah Homes and your continued dedication to those who need care in your new Alzheimer’s units.
