"The Quail Roost Foundation assisted our organization when we were in a time of crisis. Our founder and director suddenly became ill and the foundation stepped in with major support to ensure that we would make a smooth transition. We credit Quail Roost's sensitivity and commitment with our success during this difficult period. We are especially appreciative of the foundation's interest in contributing to social justice and world peace."
