THE FOUNDING STORY
WHAT'S IN A NAME
The name SON Foundation stems from several ideas that are all incorporated within the Foundation:
When Tiffany Thompson and Denise Jacobson were teaching, their classroom was fondly known as the SON Room. It was much easier to say the SON’s classroom, instead of Jacobson-Thompson.
SON is also an acronym for Serving Others’ Needs. We serve the needs of others by providing cancer patients and their families a “home-away-from-home”, surrounded by the love of Christ.
The SON Foundation is ONLY made possible by the many blessings that God has given to us. The biggest blessing of all is God’s gift to us, His SON Jesus. Jesus came to earth to take our sins away and make us whole again, with God. We are so thankful that Jesus has rescued us from our sin and we strive to show that love to each and every guest that walks into the SON Foundation House.
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT US
Resident Assistants live on site and take care of showing compassion towards guests, turning over rooms, and making sure the house is in working order.
Guests are provided with a welcome folder that contains information on the house and area resources, a Bible, and a welcome bag of goodies (if available).
Bible study is held bi-weekly at the SON House and all guests are invited and welcome.
