The most important part of our work at The Rathbun Center is the people. Our goal is to make people feel supported, comfortable, safe and secure while away from home receiving healthcare treatment. Here is what some of our guests have to say...
These comments are all journal entries left by guests of The Rathbun Center Hospitality House in Asheville.
***"Our burden was so much lighter because of your generosity. We’ll always remember Asheville as a place full of kind and caring people."
***"Your unselfishness has made a ray of sunshine when it was needed most."
***"The Rathbun Center has been such a blessing for us, and truly a wonderful support system. You do such a wonderful service, opening your arms to scared, grieving people who do not know where to turn for help and are so fearful of what may happen to their loved ones. I went into your main living room and I felt such a peaceful presence there; it was almost like God had put his hand on my shoulder and said, "Don't worry, it'll be alright." I thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking care of Joan and myself."
***"I'm writing this in behalf of my husband Jessie, who stayed with you during my stay at Thoms. We can't even tell you what this has meant to us. It was so important for him to be a part of my care and to be able to be with me."
***"A retreat in the mountains, gorgeous fall color, crunching leaves underfoot--and most importantly, caring, sharing, and loving people there when you need them the most. You have provided the greatest gift of all for families in need."
