Executive Director Melissa Honig finds Great Fulfillment in her Role

Two years ago, Melissa Honig accepted what she thought to be a temporary position as Valle Verde's interim Executive Director. Today, she continues to act as the community's Executive Director, finding great fulfillment in a labor of love that began many years ago.

When Honig was 12, her great grandmother had just moved into a nursing home. At 97, her great grandmother had lived much of her aging years independently and on her own terms. However, that feeling did not translate into her 200-square-foot, semi private room at the nursing home. She also did not enjoy how she spent her time there.

"While it was an excellent nursing home, it wasn't good enough," says Honig. "At that moment, I knew I wanted to create real homes for elders needing nursing care."

Twenty-five years later, this is still Honig's goal at Valle Verde. Throughout her time working in both the ABHOW home office and as Valle Verde’s Executive Director, Honig’s top priority has remained the same: to create a real home for all residents.
