"Kindness is my hobby"

Amanda Chitsey 
Business owner

"Think outside the box"

I have dedicated my life to the care of the elderly in the nursing homes- a quarter of a century. My daughter, at age 10, changed my entire outlook on geriatrics with one idea and one notebook. I am her proud, but humble, assistant and will proudly represent her cause with WOW and honor. 


Our Board of Directors


Our Board is unique and critical to our mission and growth.

The majority of our board members were chosen not only for their own qualifications but for what his/her child brings to our nonprofit as well. We chose strong parents with unique children who each bring something incredible to the spirit and growth of our nonprofit organization. Our entire nonprofit grew from the unique but simple relationship between a child and an elder. We believe it is critical to the vision, mission and trajectory of this organization to have a "Kid Board" to continually remind the adults of their perspective, to offer ideas and creativity, and to help us think outside the box.
