Retired Marine Creates A Safe Haven For Kids

[vc_video link=”″]

Susan Sutherland isn’t your typical daycare provider. She retired from the U.S. Marine Corp as a nurse practitioner after almost 30 years of service. That is when she found here new calling. She started Twenty-Four/Seven Daycare in West Valley, Utah. She wanted to create a clean, safe, haven for kids.

For Susan, a three-time cancer survivor, it isn’t about the money, it’s about making a difference. She understands that she doesn’t have to charge a lot to give these families and children the support they need. That is why she keeps her prices low and affordable. She even offers services for free when the need is great.

The children love Susan, and they are like family to her, so if they don’t show up for a couple of days she checks in with the parents to see what is going on. Often times she hears stories of state checks not coming through, or not having enough money to pay for gas. That is when Susan, following her mother’s good example, will dig into her own pocket and help these families out. As Susan puts it, “To me, giving somebody $20-$30 for gas is saving their job to put food [on the table] and a roof over their children’s head.”

Twenty-Four/Seven Daycare has been open for 14 years now, but has never had a website. Good Deed Revolution wants to help Susan out with that. After all the wonderful things she has done for her community, Good Deed Revolution is giving Susan and Twenty-Four/Seven Daycare a website for free as a way to pay it back.
