Adopt A Native Elder

501 Halona Street
A Bridge of Hope - Adopt-A-Native-Elder (A.N.E.) Program. Judy Rhodes and myself decided to participate and sponsor a Navajo Elder last summer after meeting the founder of A.N.E., Linda Myers. It was the beginning of a very special journey that would change our lives in unique and significant ways. In early October, we took off on a 5-day journey to the Navajo Nation – Chinle, Arizona and Canyon de Chelly to participate in three food runs and giveaway ceremonies. There were over 30 volunteers from 5 different states, including Judy and myself, two Santa Fe Village Elders helping Navajo Native Elders, whose age ranged from 75 to 98.
