Family & Nursing Care Foundation Grants $40,000 to Organizations Helping Low-Income Aging Adults

Silver Spring, MD – The Family & Nursing Care Foundation, a fund of the Community Foundation in Montgomery County, recently awarded $40,000 to two local non-profit organizations that provide low-income, aging adults with the dedicated home care support they need to remain in the safety and comfort of their own homes. To date, the Foundation has donated over a quarter of a million dollars to provide home care assistance to this growing population.

The Foundation awarded $20,000 to Home Care Partners, a non-profit home care agency that provides a wide range of supportive services for elderly, chronically ill, and disabled residents in Washington, D.C. and Montgomery County, MD. In addition, $20,000 was awarded to the Elderly Ministries program of Community Ministries of Rockville, an interfaith, non-profit organization providing a range of services to aging adults.

“I believe Family & Nursing Care has a moral imperative to give back, and one of the ways we do this is through our Foundation,” said Sandy Kursban, founder of Family & Nursing Care, Inc. and the Family & Nursing Care Foundation. “Every older adult deserves to age with dignity and respect, regardless of resources. These grants help fund the noble work the two recipient organizations engage in, day-in and day-out.”

These monetary gifts will provide for approximately 6,000 hours of in-home care for aging adults who would not otherwise be able to afford this assistance.

The Family & Nursing Care Foundation was launched by Family & Nursing Care, Inc. in 2008 to improve access to care for low-income seniors and to offer training opportunities for prospective caregivers. Annually, the Foundation has given $55,000 in grants to community organizations that support this dual mission.

Each year, Family & Nursing Care, Inc. donates a percentage of its profits to the Foundation. Ms. Kursban personally matches this amount dollar-for-dollar, as well as matches every outside donation the Foundation receives.
