"We are overjoyed by the beautiful support of the residents of Wildcat Run and the Estero business community," said Valerie's House founder, Angela Melvin. "The mission and goals of our two organizations are so closely aligned, which makes this donation even sweeter. We appreciate everyone who contributed to help Valerie's House continue on and expand our community work."

The organization provides a safe, comfortable place for children to share, grieve and heal together following the death of a close family member. Valerie's House is located at 1618 Avalon Place in the historic Dean Park community of downtown Fort Myers, with plans to expand to Naples and Cape Coral.
