A Riverside Story: Nicole Karda & Josh Weiser

Nicole Karda & Josh Weiser have known each other since 2011, when they were friends and schoolmates at the Sally Potter school. Josh came to Riverside Foundation in February 2011 and Nicole followed in July of that year. They continued going to school together until Josh’s graduation in 2012. They like many of the same things and can often be found surfing the internet together. Nicole and Josh also enjoy going to dances, CEL programs, shopping, movies and dinner outings with each other.


"Riverside is a wonderful place. I have been associated nearly 20 years as a donor, volunteer and board member, and I have gotten more out of my association than Riverside has gotten out of me."

− Tom Maas, Donor, Volunteer and Board Member
