When you give to Compassionate Home Health Care you're improving lives in our community

Description of project

Our mission is to provide household essentials (personal care/hygiene and cleaning supplies) and help support personal care services/programming for children, elderly individuals and those with disabilities or special needs through our "A Community That Cares" program. These donations go to those in our community who at the end of the month have to decide between eggs or toilet paper, milk or shampoo, bread or soap, groceries or cleaning supplies.

Part of our "A Community That Cares" program is our annual #HolidayGivingCampaign. Through this campaign - in 2017 - CHHC went from supporting 30 homes (collecting $500-$1,000.00 in items and cash donations) to over 300 homes (about 1000 people) and collected over $17,000.00 in personal care/hygiene and cleaning supply items and cash donations. Our goal in 2018 was to reach 500 homes: we reached 1300 homes (about 4000 people) and collected over $80,000 in items and cash donations. We are now in the 8th year of our #HolidayGivingCampaign and want to continue to expand our reach.
CHHC supports individuals and families in need through its partnerships and friends of the community: ADRC (Aging & Disability Resource Center), St. Vincent, Leaven, Harbor House, Pillars, veterans, local area schools, WIXX Christmas Wish, and NAHBRS. We're seeking funding to help subsidize the high cost of personal care/hygiene items and cleaning supplies for community members who struggle to purchase basic needs. Our purpose is to help provide individuals with basic necessities as many people we serve have to decide between living in a healthy, clean space and food. One example of this is: providing laundry detergent and shampoo will ensure less parents have to send their children to school in dirty clothes and without a shower.
When you give to Compassionate Home Health Care you're improving lives in our community by:
• Supporting programs run through partner organizations like Harbour House, Pillars and more.
• Providing opportunities for students at local middle schools (student council programs) and High Schools (DECA and NHS programs) to engage in volunteering, and connect with other community members.
• Engaging everyone from business owners and senior citizens to students, in order to build "A Community that Cares". Our ultimate goal is to help these individuals and their families have a cleaner, healthier, and happy start to everyday.
