At The Deker Bauer Foundation for Suicide Prevention resource centre the main goal is to make our clients feel at home because in general most feel most comfortable when at home. We strive to create and maintain relationship between staff members and clients that is most easily compared to as a family.
While thinking of how to display all of the generous donors names that have helped the foundation along the way it was decided to have a “Family Tree” painted by local artist and The Deker Bauer Foundation Board President Lindsay Peterson. Everyone who makes donations to the center has their name placed on a leaf and is proudly displayed in the branches, donors that have contributed donations of $10,000 or more are placed in the trunk of the tree.
We appreciate the generosity throughout the community and couldn’t have been as far along as we are today, without the donations that we have received since 2014.
