2014 Highlights 8: Truett Home serves Lilly
When Cherokee County Department of Social Services needed a home for a paralyzed girl, BCH’s Truett Home in Hayesville made extraordinary considerations to care for eight-year-old Lilly. BCH does not normally provide specialized medical care for children, but everyone from BCH’s leadership to caregivers felt strongly that Lilly needed to be at Truett Home until a long-term placement could be selected. Where Lilly had all but lost any connection to children her age, she was able to be with a cottage full of girls at Truett. Incredibly, during the short time she was in care, Lilly asked Christ into her heart. Today, Lilly is doing well and is living in a caring facility where her needs are met.
