THE STORY:

Albert P. Ballog, Jr., our loving father and husband, passed away on May 4, 2016 after an almost 2 year battle against pancreatic cancer. He started fighting the day he found out his diagnosis, and never gave up. Despite enduring a complex Whipple surgery, over 50 chemotherapy sessions, and near constant pain, he smiled through it all. His strength and bravery was remarkable.

Despite his own situation, our father was always concerned about others and never stopped caring about those around him. The Los Angeles House of Ruth, located in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of East L.A., is an organization that was very close to his heart. It was founded in 1978 through a joint effort between the Los Angeles Catholic Worker, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, and several other women’s organizations to serve homeless women and children. They serve battered and homeless single mothers and their children by providing them with a safe and secure place to heal and supportive services to help them secure permanent housing. In 36 years of service, they have provided shelter to over 4,000 women and children, achieved a 90% annual success rate placing families into permanent housing, and a 95% rate keeping them there long-term. It is truly a remarkable organization and the work that they do touches the lives of so many. Please visit their website www.losangeleshouseofruth.com for more information.

Our father would be honored and humbled to know that this amazing organization was able to benefit from his passing. Thank you so much for your generosity!

With Love, 

The Ballog Family- Marian, Sarah & Steve Smith, Matthew & Beth, Robert, and grandchildren Patrick & Thomas Ballog and Emma Smith
