Investing in local healthcare secures the supportive care that you or a family member may one day need. The best part: your care can be delivered right here, in your community, without having to worry about long distance travel. The end result: better healthcare outcomes and long-lasting relationships with those who were right by your side along the way.
Meet Danielle. She and her son, Alex, found the support they needed in the programs and services that are available at Children’s Village. Without the generous support of our community, such specialized care could only be made available at a distance, in major cities where there are larger populations to serve. Alex is now healthier… leading a productive, promising life.
This #GivingTuesday, November 28, lend your support to the amazing specialized care and services that exist at Children’s Village. Your gift will help others, like Danielle and Alex, find solace in the healthcare that resides in their community.
Improving your community involves instilling a better quality of life for those who lives within it. This quality of life should apply to everyone – young or old; healthy or sick. Compass Care ensures that those who are enduring a chronic or terminal illness will be guaranteed their quality of life, as best as is possible, for its duration.
Meet Ray… he became a donor after a family member received care at Cottage in the Meadow, a service that is under the Compass Care umbrella. It was this experience that compelled him to become involved in ensuring such services remain available in Yakima.
It is important to him that others who may be going through a similar life circumstance can receive the same quality of care as his loved one. Ray’s impact has been phenomenal!
