Dr. Ella Mae Piper family

Founded by the estate of Dr. Ella Mae Piper, upon her death in 1954, the Dr. Piper Center of today continues to thrive because others have joined her incredible legacy of generosity. We are grateful for our donors beyond measure, because each gift makes our programs possible. All of our programs touch lives and hearts, and reach those in our community in need of hope, connection, and purpose. We are humbled by the fact that our most enthusiastic donors are the clients of our programs. The Dr. Piper Center is funded by individuals, foundations, corporations, and grants. We are a proud United Way Partner Agency, and have enjoyed a 26 year relationship with Americorps Senior.
