Sunrise Resident Continues to Give Back to Her Community

Bernadine has lived at Sunrise of Roseville, MN, for just over seven months so far, but she has led a fascinating life, full of helping and caring for other people. One of her very notable projects is with an organization called Birth Right. Bernie volunteered at Birth Right, a pro-life organization that administered pregnancy tests to young, unwed ladies, and then helped them to carry their babies to term. Bernie started with the organization as an RN, administering the pregnancy tests, and later became the president of the Minnesota chapter. “Any girls who were hard to place came to live with us in our home” she says. Living in a stable home and witnessing true fatherly love from Merlyn, Bernie’s husband, who also resides at Sunrise of Roseville, helped “these girls with mixed-up lives find direction, and none of them got into trouble again.”

Howie originally came to Chicago’s Anti-Cruelty Society from Tennessee through the Rescue Waggin’ program, which relocates homeless pets from shelters to loving homes.  He can now be found wandering around the community with residents, team members and family members.
