Wolf (2)Please join us in congratulating Ellen Wolf and Sherri Kaufman for receiving the Above and Beyond Award for March. This monthly award is a great way for us to recognize and thank staff, students, volunteers, and the community who go above and beyond for the agency, helping to promote and raise needed funds for the program’s growth.

Ellen and Sherri are founding parents of the Genesis School.  Their daughter Beth entered Genesis when she was 7 years old.  Beth is now a very happy and sweet young lady, in our Adult Day Program.  Since Beth entered Genesis Ellen and Sherri have been tireless supporters of Eden II.  Every year Ellen and Sherri support all Long Island events by donating, attending, and fund-raising to help raise much needed funding.  This year their generosity and support has improved and increased the recreational opportunities and technology in the Genesis Adult Day Program.

Sherri and Ellen are grateful to Genesis and Eden II for all they have done for their daughter and family. “We have a basically happy young woman who is very friendly and interested in people and who has close to no behaviors. We cannot thank Genesis staff enough.  Beth is a bright light in our lives and almost everyone who meets her comments to us on how sweet she is.”

We are so very fortunate to have Ellen Wolf and Sherri Kaufman as a part of the Eden II family.  As a recipient of the Above and Beyond Award, Ellen and Sherri will be recognized on a permanent plaque on both Staten Island and Long Island.
