Hope HealthCare Services recently was awarded a $5,000 grant from BJ’s Charitable Foundation to support the Hope Connections program.

Hope Connections provides in-home care for elderly adults in Hendry and Glades counties, providing nutritious meals and assistance with a variety of needs including chores, companionship, safety reviews, and transportation.

Funds from BJ’s Charitable Foundation will help purchase food for Hope Connections patients.

“Our commitment through Hope Connections is to help aging seniors remain in their homes,” said Samira K. Beckwith, president and CEO of Hope HealthCare Services. “By helping to provide a safe, caring environment, social interaction, and nutritious food, Hope is able to help individuals and their families live comfortably and confidently in the place they call home. BJ’s support will assist us tremendously in caring for these patients, each and every day.”

“BJ’s Charitable Foundation is dedicated to supporting hunger prevention, self-sufficiency, health care and education in the communities surrounding our clubs,” said Jessica Newman, executive director of the foundation. “We hope this donation benefits the incredible efforts of Hope HealthCare Services and the work they are doing to impact the lives of individuals and families, and enables them to continue to provide crucial services to those in need.”
