Meeting year-round financial needs for low-income seniors
Donor gifts to the Annual Fund provide care for the activities of daily living and daily medical care to low-income seniors in our Assisted Living and Health Care Centers. More than 40% of residents in our centers depend on Medicaid to pay the cost of their daily care. Yet, Medicaid reimburses Warm Beach just 70% of our actual cost to provide care in our Healthcare center and just 51% of our actual cost to provide care in Assisted Living. While other care centers serve only those with private pay insurance, because of donors like you, Warm Beach is able to welcome and sustain care for these low-income seniors. Your gifts are the key to sustainable compassionate care in their lives.
Good Samaritan Fund
Donor gifts to the Good Samaritan Fund provide financial assistance for monthly rent and living essentials to low-income seniors in our retirement community. Your gifts make it possible to provide quality affordable housing to those who could not otherwise afford it. Many Good Samaritan recipients served full time in ministry and entered their retirement years with little or no savings after a lifetime of serving and meetings the needs of others. Your gift to the Good Samaritan Fund preserves dignity and provides safety and peace of mind to our low-income retirement community members. Your gifts are the difference in our ability to serve the needs of low-incoming retirement age seniors at Warm Beach.
Program & Scholarship Fund
Donor gifts to the Program & Scholarship Fund make it possible for Warm Beach to offer many free or reduced cost activities and programs for low-income seniors. This includes the expenses and supplies necessary for onsite events and activities, the costs for offsite day trips and on site life-skills classes. Your gift to the Program & Scholarship Fund ensures that everyone who wants to participate can participate without cost being a barrier. Shared experiences bring richness to life and build relationships because of your gifts to the Program & Scholarship Fund.
Helen Harte Employee Assistance Fund
Donor gifts to the Helen Harte Employee Assistance Fund provide financial assistance to staff members experiencing a temporary hardship due to unforeseen expenses like vehicle repairs, medical or dental expenses and similar emergencies. We believe that it is important to take care of the staff who work so hard to give of themselves to our residents. Your gift to the Helen Harte Fund make this possible.
Helen Harte was a well loved employee at Warm Beach who perished in a car accident. Helen was known for her positive attitude, love of residents and her willingness to cover co-worker's shifts when they had emergencies. The employee assistance fund was renamed in her honor.
Each year donors give generously to support the life-changing mission of Warm Beach Senior Community to low-income seniors. That mission is only sustainable through donor gifts. Because of your gifts Warm Beach is able to:
- Provide ongoing medical care and assistance with the activities of daily living for low-income residents in our Assisted Living & Health Care Centers thru your gifts to the Annual Fund.
- Provide financial assistance for monthly rent and living essentials (food, utilities, medications, transportation) for low-income residents in our Retirement Communities thru your gifts to the Good Samaritan Fund.
- Provide scholarship assistance for the cost of programs and life-skills classes to low-income seniors thru your gifts to the Program & Scholarship Fund.
- Provide emergency financial assistance to our staff in their times of crisis thru your gifts to the Helen Harte Fund.
