The Foundation’s programs benefit residents and employees, as well as older adults in the greater community and those who care for them. It is the care, concern and generosity of SVWC donors that make these programs possible, as funding is solely obtained through charitable gifts from residents, families, employees, trustees, friends, businesses and foundations.
Security and Peace of Mind
Qualified residents receive confidential assistance so they can continue to live here in dignity. The fund was also established to enable entry to those who might not otherwise be able to afford the cost.
Employee Emergency Fund
Staff members who have demonstrated an urgent need for financial assistance may receive confidential financial support. Assistance is paid directly to the service provider (e.g., hospital, landlord, etc.) and only after the Employee Emergency Fund committee has reviewed and approved the application of need.
