Women's History Month

Women’s History Month has inspired us to remember Helen Whittier Andrus Benedict, the youngest child of John and Julia Andrus. After her father's death, Helen devoted herself to her father's legacy, not only “giving opportunities to youth” but also fulfilling his wish for providing “rest for the aged” with the completion of the John E. Andrus Memorial today known at Andrus on Hudson!

In a time when few women were business leaders, Helen advanced the Surdna Foundation as an essential philanthropic resource. We are forever grateful to Helen, Julia, and all the strong women who helped to form Andrus on Hudson into the compassionate caring environment that it has been for over 70 years. #WomensHistoryMonth #AoHCares
