Senator Mel Martinez
"Mr. Martinez, Mr. President, today I congratulate Mrs. Conchy Bretos of Miami, FL, recipient of the 2006 Purpose Prize. She became the driving force behind the Helen Sawyer building in Miami, the Nation's first public housing project to offer assisted living services. Her efforts have resulted in the creation of similar services in 40 public housing projects in a dozen States, allowing many older adults to maintain their independence while they receive the care they need."
"Mia Senior Living Solutions, who is highly skilled and knowledgeable, approaches assignments with energy and enthusiasm. They make very effective recommendations based on their years of experience in the marketplace with a wide network of clients and relationships.

"We appreciate Mia Senior Living Solutions' efforts in guiding us step by step through a very involved licensing and start-up process to provide services to our seniors. We appreciate Mia's assistance as we charter into a new line of business and are happy to say that DCHA looks forward to the firms support in helping to deliver exceptional housing with wrap around services to residents of the Marigold at 11th Street."
"Mia Senior Living Solutions utilizes their proficient knowledge of a complicated billing process of various funding sources available through the State of Florida.
