Tim Kounter guides families through the maze of senior living options for Bakersfield and surrounding communities at no charge. Tim is also a dedicated donor who says, ” I see all Tim Kounterthe reasons that prohibit people from donating, and am thankful I am not disqualified for one reason or another. On rare occasion, when I see the pictures of near empty shelves of blood that Houchin posts, I pray no one is in need until that type is replenished.” Blood donation is a family affair at the Kounter house and it brings Tim a lot of joy to see his own children doing their part. Thank you for your dedication to our mission Tim and for the generous sponsorship for January.

One of the personal touches Tim brings to those he places is a red rose delivered to their new home.  Below you will find photographs of many of these seniors enjoying Tim’s gift.
