2014 Baptist Retirement Homes Foundation Highlights

As a result of the wonderful support that the Baptist Retirement Homes Foundation received from its friends across the state and region in 2014, it was able to touch the lives of countless numbers of North Carolina Older Adults via direct financial assistance to institutionalized Seniors for care in a post acute setting and community based programming that provided supervised care and socialization in a non-institutional setting, nutrition, and assistance with such essentials as home heating during the winter months.

During 2014, the "Foundation":

  • Provided more than $3,200,000 to help underwrite the cost of providing care to North Carolina Older Adults who could not afford to pay for the quality institutional services that they both needed and deserved.
  • Provided financial assistance to the CARE and ARC organizations, not for profit adult day respite programs in Albemarle and Smithfield and the Seniors who participated in that programming.
  • Provided financial assistance to the Surry Baptist Association to purchase equipment for its Wood Ministry ... a program that provides wood to rural Seniors for home heating.
  • Underwrote financially the Fellowship-To-Go program, a state-wide church based nutrition program for homebound Older adults.
  • Provided financial assistance to the Cleveland County Potato Project, a community based not for profit organization in Cleveland County that, with the help of volunteers, grows potatoes ford istribution to the "Poor Elderly" of that area of the state to assist with their nutrition needs.
  • Provided financial assistance to selected youth groups in local churches for music programming with homebound Older Adults with dementia.
