Guthrie Gala

“I was diagnosed with cancer in November and life went upside down. I could no longer work and was left with no savings. The Sayre House of Hope was a life saver for me. Without it I would have been living in my car. It gave me a place to stay to help me get back on my feet and focus on my health. Thank you.”
