Little Hill Foundation
The mission of Little Hill Foundation for the Rehabilitation of Alcoholics is to operate Alina Lodge and Haley House for the purpose of helping people attain and maintain a life of sobriety.
Alina Lodge was founded in 1957 by Mrs. Geraldine Owen Delaney and she served as the Executive Director for nearly four decades. "Mrs. D" was a legend in the field of alcoholism treatment and was instrumental in the treatment and recovery of many alcoholics and their family members.
She inspired thousands of people to regain their lives and to live sober. Through her own example of 50 years of sobriety, Mrs. Delaney helped people come to believe that "hope can become fact".
She believed it - she lived it.
Born in Stonington, IL., Mrs. Delaney was the wife of the late Thomas F. Delaney. She received her formal education at Knox College in Galesburg, IL. and the University of Illinois. She received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Seton Hall University. Presidents, Governors, and the American Medical Association have honored Mrs. Delaney over the years.
Her passion for giving people hope lives on at Alina Lodge and Haley House!
