Potter’s House in Guatemala
While at a recent healthcare conference, CEO Matt Price was inspired by the works and mission of Potter House founder, Gladys Guitz. Potter House, with support from Potter House associations across the United States, provides five avenues of support to the 11,000 hard working and determined adults and children who earn a living by scavenging through the rubbish in the dump of Guatemala City each day in search of valuables. These families on average earn $3 a day for 12 hours of work. Potter House provides physical, educational, health and most importantly spiritual support to these 1,500 families, including 6,500 children. Advantage RN made a donation to Potter House which went toward feeding 750 children for a month.
