  • Anita Ulloa & Steve MacDonald

    Anita Ulloa-MacDonald & Steve MacDonald are the proud parents of Kenny who has been a part of TERI's programs since 2004. Kenny currently resides in one of TERI's Residential Program homes in Oceanside, CA and attends TERI's Center for Arts & Adult Education.

    It is hard to express our enormous gratitude in words, but to put it simply, TERI has saved our son's life, and in the process, our family was also saved. Our planned gift is intended to ensure TERI's programs continue in perpetuity, for our son and the families that follow! The confidence we have in TERI to take care of our son gives us the same confidence in entrusting our financial legacy with them.

    Health and education are important to me and should be important to our society. So often we forget those that may not be able to advocate for themselves, and it is our duty to ensure they have continued access to these fundamental rights. This is why I choose to invest in TERI's future and the families they serve - I saw firsthand the impact TERI is having. Healthy, fitness, and unique ways of learning are at the core of everything they do.
