Hall of Honor

This list is to honor those visionary residents of Douglas County who saw the need for a place for children to stay and be cared for while the adults worked things out. They banded together and served on the board of directors. Through their hard work, Austin’s House went from an idea to a full-fledged facility.


Some, like Linda Cuddy-Stieber and Terry Palmitier, were there from the beginning. Others got involved a little later and served to keep the organization afloat, and still others came along to continue the vision. Thank you all for your tenacity and service to the children and our community!
