Tompkins County, New York State. The Health Foundation for Western and Central New York has awarded Love Living at Home (LLH) a grant to help support its scholarship fund.
In addition, LLH has received grants from The Helen T. Howland Foundation as administered by the Community Foundation of Tompkins County and the ‘Jane Foundation’ of Community Foundation of Tompkins County.
From the very beginning, the Love Living at Home Board of Directors has been deeply committed to having an inclusive membership which represents the diversity of Tompkins County. LLH has developed a Sponsored Membership Policy to help with the cost of membership or to waive the membership fee for anyone who indicates that the fee is a barrier
Love Living at Home is greatly appreciative to these grantors that we now have designated revenue to help accelerate our inclusion of sponsored members. Membership fees only cover half of our delivery of services and programs to our members. This new revenue provides resources to make significant progress in pursuing the sponsorship plan.
“Each of us has personally come to realize that life, at this stage, is fluid. It is a time of need, but also a time to give back. I am proud that the support of dignity and independence for seniors is the very core of LLH’s charitable mission.” – Jim Quest, Co-Founder, LLH.
These grants reflect the mission of Love Living at Home, the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York, and the Community Foundation of Tompkins County. This is a partnership dedicated to helping older adults stay healthy and independent in their own homes and communities as they age, by providing a mixture of social opportunities, volunteer opportunities, services, and coordinated access to community resources.
Founded in October of 2016 Love Living at Home is a not for profit serving members throughout Tompkins County. LLH is a grass-roots membership organization modeled on a national aging-in-place initiative. Love Living at Home is not a place on a map – it is a gateway to relationships and resources for adults 62 years of age and older who desire to continue to live in the homes and neighborhoods they love. We are a welcoming network of people helping people. Our programs enrich life and forge connections for new relationships. When you need peace of mind, support is one phone call away.
