Nazareth Home 2017 Honor Roll of Donors

Nazareth Home gratefully acknowledges the individuals, groups, corporations, foundations, and organizations that made it possible for us to fulfill our mission of providing hope and help to those we served in 2017.

We have made every effort to ensure that lists of donors are both accurate and complete. If your name or the name of your company has been omitted, misspelled, or otherwise improperly recorded, please contact Amanda Maynard at (219) 947-8565. We truly regret any inaccuracies.
