Discovery Home Care, Inc., originated in the heart of Managing Director, Sandra Abraham Williams, many years before the actual Corporation start date of January 2006. As the mother of 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 14 foster children 2 of whom she has legal guardianship, Mrs. Williams has been in the business of loving and caring for children most of her life.
Mrs. Williams first opened her home to a child as a Foster Parent in 1988. Over the years, multitudes of youth have had the pleasure and joy of calling her “Mom”. With Mrs. Williams’ love for children she envisioned providing a place for children who needed a safe place to call “HOME”.
In 2006, Mr. & Mrs. Williams along with their children formed Discovery Home Care, Inc., Emergency Youth Shelter. The Williams’ eldest daughter, Tammy Legette, became the Executive Director of Discovery Home Care, Inc. in July 2007. Her other 3 children along with her granddaughter worked within the shelter promoting love and a family atmosphere for the youth residing in the shelter. IRS 501(c)3 nonprofit status was received in July 2008, along with an Endorsement from the Town of Ranlo NC.
From the first day of operation Mr. Early and Mrs. Sandra Williams not only personally funded every aspect of the Shelter, but have also provided funds for 192 outside activities for the youth residing in the shelter.
