The Rathbun Center, a temporary home for almost 52,000 members of patients’ families and caregivers during the last 19 years, has transitioned to the Mission Foundation. This will ensure the “House with a Heart” will remain the warm, comfortable and well-maintained environment it is today and will sustain its availability for visitors to all major medical facilities in Asheville.
“Thanks to the Mission Foundation, my dream will live on,” Rathbun Center founder and philanthropist Adelaide Daniels Key, PhD, said, upon receiving approval for the transition of control to the Mission Healthcare Foundation. It was the inspiration of Dr. Key to transform 18 acres of bare land into 36 well-appointed temporary residences in 1994.
