Family & Nursing Care’s mission of care extends to the community through the Family & Nursing Care Foundation, which offers grants to organizations that help lower-income older adults gain access to home care services 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 $50,000 scholarship fund through a partnership with Montgomery College to support students pursuing their CNA license. 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. “Knowing that the seniors in our community and new Caregivers are able to receive this assistance is so important to me,” says Sandy. “It’s amazing to see how our combined support helps many people live vibrant lives.”
Family & Nursing Care staff care deeply and support the Family & Nursing Care Foundation. Through payroll deduction, annual holiday parties, initiatives such as the GivHero challenge, and a personal match from Sandy herself, older adults and their loved ones can feel secure and safe knowing that someone is there to help them. “It warms my heart that so many members of our Family & Nursing Care staff have chosen and continue to choose to make donations to the Family & Nursing Care Foundation,” says Sandy.
