How You Can Help
Thank you for your interest in helping SCHAS make the world a better place for seniors and disabled individuals. We need you! There are many ways that you can get involved, and get your family, friends, businesses, neighborhoods, schools and churches involved as volunteers and donors. Listed below are ways that you can help SCHAS make a difference in the lives of seniors and those with disabilities.
- Make A Donation
- Endowment Fund
Unlike other care giving agencies, SCHAS is unique in that we offer financial aid, known as a sliding scale fee, to clients who cannot afford the full fee nor are eligible for government assistance. Through grants, fundraisers, the Endowment fund and support from the United Way, SCHAS is able to help those in need.
The SCHAS Endowment Fund was established to provide the means for the agency to continue offering affordable programs and services to clients who qualify for our sliding scale fee program. Money is set aside permanently so that the income earned can be used to meet the needs of those clients. The amount of assistance we can provide will increase as the fund grows through contributions.
The governing board of SCHAS is charged with oversight of the fund and no portion of the fund is used for the administrative expenses of SCHAS.
The decisions that you make today can have a positive impact in the lives of others long after you are gone. Help SCHAS continue a great legacy of offering affordable services to senior citizens and persons with disabilities. Make a contribution to the SCHAS Endowment Fund today. Your gift to the SCHAS Endowment Fund will ensure that homemaker, personal care and transportation services will be offered to those who need the help but do not have the financial resources.
