Community awarded $20k grant

Community Home Health & Hospice was the recipient of a $20,000 matching grant from The Health Care Foundation earlier this month. Longtime supporter Don Heimbigner gifted $20,000 in matching funds. All $40,000 raised will go towards Community’s CNA Training Program.

This program sponsors Nursing Assistant-Registered (NAR) or Home Care Aid Certified (HCAC) employees at Community through their schooling to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).

Sammy Schumacher, CNA, and Starlie Vaillencourt, CNA, are two who have already taken advantage of the program and achieved CNA certification.

“Within Community, I am surrounded with such an amazing team that nurtures and provides support as I grow,” said Schumacher. “The CNA scholarship program gave me the opportunity to gain experience working as a NAR while studying for my clinicals and testing. I not only gained a position as a valued healthcare professional, I also gained a career that I continue to grow within and can make a difference by being a part of.”

Vaillencourt carried the same notion, saying, “Taking the CNA class and getting my license was by far the best decision I have made with my career. Being a CNA is rewarding in so many ways. Not only do you get to provide one-on-one care, but you get to be there for the patients when they need someone the most.”
