Even if things do not give any kind of gaming advantages, the desire to simply show everyone that your hero is more beautiful and brighter makes gamers spend money. Online games can be very expensive entertainment.

In 1911, our Welsh ancestors founded The Welsh Home, a 501c3 charity dedicated to maintaining the level of tender care for our residents in their particular needs, that they may be comforted, cared for and be at peace.  We are committed to that service to humanity.

The most recent enhancement to our residents' quality of life that was made possible by generous donations was our new, state-of-the-art bus. This bus has the capability to safetly transport up to 15 residents. Our Life Enrichment department now can take more residents on outings like the zoo, picnics, trips to the lake, tour of the city to see Christmas light and leaf trip rides.
