Yvonne Fried, Owner 

Ashland, Oregon 


Prospect House is the Adult Foster Care Home in Ashland Oregon where elders feel at home and their families feel at peace. Yvonne Fried, owner and founder, first heard of the SOU Small Business Development Center from a poster located on the Ashland campus. Yvonne and her husband were able to receive valuable guidance and support from the SOU SBDC for their business start up. They attended many of the workshops offered including Smart Start, Business Plan Workshop, Profit Mastery, and Veterans Small Business Management. They also took advantage of the no-fee, one-on-one business counseling in order to gain a better understanding of employee relations. Yvonne and her six employees care for their residents as they would their own family with respect to each unique situation. Their large interdisciplinary team consists of a resident physician, home health and hospice nurses, physical and occupational therapists, social workers and volunteers. Prospect House is designed with the resident and visiting family in mind. Twenty-eight skylights bathe the interior space with natural light and the exterior is surrounded by redwood decks. There are beautiful garden views from every room and opportunity for residents to care for their own garden space.Prospect House is located on .6 acres of land in the hills over looking Ashland Oregon, just two blocks from Southern Oregon University.
