Feild Family Visits Jackson-Feild

Ninety eight years ago Mr. & Mrs. George W. Feild donated their ancestral home, Walnut Grove, to Jackson-Feild Behavioral Health Services.  It was the dream of Mr. & Mrs. Feild to help girls with no home. They had lost a daughter in her infancy and made the gift of their home to help orphan girls.

Their generosity is and has been an inspiration to countless others to help children who have obstacles to overcome.

Members of the Feild family recently visited the campus. Beth Feild, her parents and children traveled to the campus and Grace Church. Beth is a former board member and hopes to re-join the Board of Directors. Her parents have visited many times over the years but it was the first time her children had visited the campus.

They met with Tricia Delano, CEO, and had lunch with the children.  The staff were thrilled to have members of the Feild family on campus and shared information about how they were helping boys and girls with emotional disorders.
