Meet Debbie. Debbie was our very first resident. Emmaus welcomed Debbie in 1994 after her Pap Pap became ill and could no longer care for her. By the time he passed away in 1998 Debbie had established a life with Emmaus complete with new friendships, an active social life and the opportunity and support to practice her faith.
Debbie has worked at Goodwill Industries for over fifteen years and is active in Special Olympics.
Through being active and learning to make healthy choices, Debbie has lost over 100 pounds since living at Emmaus. Her infectious laugh and impish smile warms the heart of everyone she meets!
