Sammy Sullivan House

“If we don't stand up for children, then we don't stand for much.” - Marian Wright Edelman

When 22-month old Sammy Sullivan suddenly died, it left his family struggling with how to keep his precious memory alive. His parents, Joe and Brenda Sullivan, decided to create Sammy Sullivan Charities and spread some hope and comfort to other families in need.

Sammy Sullivan Charities pledged $400,000 to build a 12 bed home at A Kid’s Place, a five home Residential Care Facility for abused, abandoned, and neglected children.  The funds to meet the obligations of the pledge were raised at the annual Sammy Sullivan Golf Tournament.

The building of the Sammy Sullivan House at A Kid's Place has been completed and in September 2010 Sammy Sullivan Charities paid off their pledge.

Though the Sammy Sullivan House at A Kid's Place has been built, your gift will insure the continued upkeep of the home and provide needed items for the children housed there. Whether scared, confused, bruised or battered, Sammy Sullivan’s House will provide a safe haven for these children in their time of need.

The decision to remember the life of Sammy through this foundation is his family’s gift to the community. Your gift in his memory is priceless.

My Philosophy - Dottie Berger MacKinnon

"Our kids have had a rough time before they came to us, and chances are they will have a rough time after they leave -  maybe for a long time.  Somewhere down the road they are going to remember that there was a period in their lives when life was good, when people cared, and there were loving people in this world who made them feel special - because they are.  That's A Kid's Place.  We all do our little part to make these children feel loved."
