The majority of the funding we receive from government entitled programs such as Medicaid and Social Security cover room and board costs. Through donations, enhancements are possible and provide for innovative and updated technology equipment, environmental upgrades and compassionate care for our residents. These improvements and enrichments make a tremendous difference in our residents’ lives.

"I have been volunteering at Riverside Foundation for over 20 years – running the Scouting program. I have worked with the residents on a monthly basis throughout the years. The men and women in the Scout program participate in various activities providing diversion from regular routines. They sing, dance, play games and interact with peers. I have made close relationships with those residents who are involved in the Scout program. As a volunteer, I have had a wonderful feeling of satisfaction working with these great people. They show “appreciation” for what we do, and we love the response we get from being with them."− Ralph Rehbock, Volunteer
