Ralph and Eleanor
Joann Leatherby Bates,
Russ and Susie Leatherby.
Following the leadership
example of the late Ralph Leatherby and Eleanor “Amma” Leatherby, the family committed to using their entrepreneurial legacy for the benefit of Casa de Amma’s residents and families.
The Leatherby Family, along with many encouraging friends, were called to use their time and treasure
for the creation of a community that would be a residential model for providing life services to adults
with special needs. It is the hope of the Leatherbys that Casa de Amma will serve to develop the full
potential of the residents and allow the rest of us to see “the work of God” in their lives.
