At Family & Nursing Care, our mission of care extends to the community through the Family & Nursing Care Foundation, which offers grants to help lower-income older adults gain access to the home care they need and provides scholarships for students to receive Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) training to care for the aging population.
We are so grateful to those who have contributed to the Family & Nursing Care Foundation, which operates as a fund of the Greater Washington Community Foundation. It is because of these donations that this year we were able to grant:
- $20,000 to Home Care Partners
- $20,000 to Community Reach of Montgomery County
- $20,000 to the Jewish Social Service Agency (JSSA)
In addition, the Family & Nursing Care Foundation has established a scholarship fund at Montgomery College to support students pursuing their Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) license. Through a partnership with the college, the Foundation has established a $50,000 scholarship. Ten-Thousand dollars is awarded each year over a five-year period to selected CNA candidates applying for financial assistance.
It is very rewarding to see our grants provide low-income seniors with peace of mind through devoted home care and help build and enhance the careers of future CNAs. It is an honor and a privilege to be able to support these incredible organizations.
Improving the quality of life for low-income seniors is the reason our Founder, Sandy Kursban, started the Family & Nursing Care Foundation. Every gift to the Foundation is personally matched by Sandy, dollar for dollar. If you are interested in donating, please click here for more information.
