OUR SINCERE THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO PARTICIPATED WITH US IN HONOR OF NATIONAL HABITAT/LOWE'S WOMEN BUILD WEEK IN MAY 2017
Our Sincere Thanks goes out to WellMed Charitable Foundation...
WellMed Charitable Foundation grant to help seniors
in St. Lucie County stay in their homes and “Age in Place.”
Funds will assist with small repairs and improvements to housing.
Port St. Lucie, FL – Thanks to a $10,000 grant from the WellMed Charitable Foundation to the St. Lucie Habitat for Humanity, will be awarded funds to make small repairs and improvements to their homes to enable them to “age in place”.
Bob Calhoun, St. Lucie Habitat for Humanity Executive Director, said, “This grant will play an integral role in our efforts to keep seniors in their homes for as long as they choose to live there. There’s no question that aging in place is the choice most seniors would make if they have the opportunity to do so. And now, thanks in part to the WellMed Charitable Foundation, seniors in St. Lucie County will have that opportunity.”
The funds will be used to address items that make homes unsafe, including open spaces allowing mold to develop inside causing respiratory issues for older homeowners. Since the hurricanes of 2004, health experts report respiratory issues from mold have skyrocketed, especially among the most vulnerable populations – the aged and young children. Individual grants to seniors are expected to average $1,500 with funding from WellMed Charitable Foundation and other grantors.
The WellMed Charitable Foundation is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization that supports seniors and their caregivers with a special emphasis on wellness, prevention, and living with chronic illness. Established in 2006 by noted physician Dr. George Rapier III, who is also Chairman of the Board, the Foundation operates several programs that impact tens of thousands of seniors annually.
Our Sincere Thanks goes out to Publix Super Markets Charities...
St. Lucie Habitat for Humanity is proud to announce that they are one of the 120 affiliates chosen as a recipient of the generosity of the Publix Super Markets Charities (PSMC). Please continue to watch our Facebook and Website for the announcement of the home dedication this Spring.
Publix Super Markets Charities (PSMC) announced that it would donate $5.5 million to Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the Southeast. The donation will provide funding to over 120 affiliates and build more than 60 new houses in 2017.
“Every family deserves an opportunity to have a roof over their heads and food on their table,” said Carol Jenkins Barnett, president of Publix Super Markets Charities. “My father established our foundation in 1966 with a strong desire to see our communities thrive. Fifty years later, we’re still honoring his legacy. We are delighted to support Habitat for Humanity affiliates across Publix’s footprint by giving $5.5 million to this very important cause.”
