Covid has been challenging for everyone.  It has been especially difficult for Goli.

Goli Balakhani is a single, quadriplegic woman in our community, who has not been able to move for over 30 years.

A few years ago, Goli lost her ability to speak.  She is confined to a bed and on a ventilator - an excruciatingly difficult situation to be in.  And then came Covid and very limited visitation, exacerbating her already painful isolation.

Because of the past support from our wonderful community and others, we were able to hire an exceptional part-time aide for her who has helped offset her suffering tremendously.  Funds for this important need are almost depleted.  Please help us continue to provide Goli with this critical care.

She needs YOUR help NOW!
