Hi! My name is Rebecca Cilluffo, and I am currently a senior at Hope College in Holland, Michigan.
Senior Moments from H.O.M.E.
I will forever treasure the memories I made at here at H.O.M.E. and wanted to share some of my reflections. My experience interning with H.O.M.E has been both positive and heartwarming.
During these past few months, I have realized how easily a house, a physical building or a place of work, can become a home, a place with emotional attachment, where I feel like I belong.

Fall in Chicago is always a beautiful time of year. And today in particular many Chicagoans have an extra pep in their step because of a little win at Wrigley Field this weekend that sent the Cubs to the World Series.
Here at H.O.M.E. we are having a beautiful season as well. This fall we are welcoming several new faces to the H.O.M.E. team. While each new member has come to us in different ways, each is committed to our mission to help seniors in Chicago maintain their independence.
Each will take a role in putting smile on the faces of the seniors we serve!
This summer we are welcoming several new faces to the H.O.M.E. family, all of whom are coming to us from varied backgrounds and for different roles. They all have one thing in common - they will be helping to put big smiles on the faces of seniors that we serve.
