At this time of Thanksgiving we pause to count our blessings. The freedom of this great country in which we live is truly amazing and provides us with so much opportunity for achievement. May the good things of life be yours in abundance, not only at Thanksgiving but throughout the coming year!

Yesterday the Windermere Family gathered together to celebrate its second annual Thanksgiving Potluck! Agents, staff and affiliates came together to welcome the season of thanks with delicious food and kind-hearted friends. With delicious homemade treats made by staff and agents, it was surely a great time for the office to give thanks for our business and one another.
With the holiday season commencing this month, it’s the perfect time of year to come together and do something great for those less fortunate. Since early this summer, Windermere has been in support of a wonderful organization, the Eli Home, a shelter for abused women and children. Living in an extremely prosperous place such as Orange County, we many times forget that there are numerous families in need living in the same cities we do. Located in the heart of Orange County, the very place many of us work in and call home, the Eli Home provides an opportunity for us as a community to come together and support those in need.
The Eli Home is a comprehensive faith based organization with 3 shelter facilities, a thrift store social enterprise, a place-based initiative called ESCRI, corporate offices, professional counseling and therapy staff, organizational staff, dedicated volunteers, board members with a history of national acknowledgment including that of George Bush and Bill Clinton. Unlike many shelters that fill up and cannot provide assistance to every family in need, the Eli Home’s goal is to never fail to assist those who reach out to it. Windermere lovingly sponsors their mission: to welcome, shelter, comfort, heal, encourage and strengthen victims of child abuse and neglect, and to prepare them to reenter the community to lead stable, non-violent lives, free from fear and intimidation to break the cycle of child abuse.
