"I met the Founder (Miriam Broderick) 15 years ago when asked to do formal training for the organization's team. Through that encounter I learned about My Father's House's incredible story and history. My entire professional career has been focused on helping people and changing lives in the private sector. I wanted to use this knowledge to give back to the community in another way. I believe that no matter the age or the environment or the circumstance, every individual deserves a place that will allow them to get the help and care they need to be healthy and happy. Today, my volunteerism continues as Board President where the mission continues to be strong and where every day stories are shared on how this small non-profit has changed a life, supported a family or was a resource to the community.

"I met the Founder (Miriam Broderick) 20 years ago when a good friend of mine was struggling with addiction. Until then I had no idea how widespread and misunderstood of an issue it could be. It makes me proud to know that I am supporting, in some small way, people who are trying to make a difference in the lives of others."-Burns

“I reached out to my childhood friend, Sean Broderick, regarding a work opportunity. This lead to meeting his mother, Miriam, founder of My Father’s House and discussions about their mission ensued. I knew immediately that I wanted to be a part of this. This spoke to me personally having lost friends to the disease of addiction. I am committed to keeping Miriam’s vision alive through My Father’s House”
