A Dream Fulfilled to Those in Need

A Dream Fulfilled to Those in Need

December 29, 2017

An investment that expands the outreach and mission of Mary’s Woods made for an early Christmas gift filled with health care support for seniors living at a Northwest Housing Alternatives community in Bend, Oregon. Mary’s Woods Home Care team conducted free blood pressure checks and addressed basic medical concerns. In addition to Home Care Services, Mary’s Woods provided food and raffle prizes for this community’s annual holiday party.

This mission-focused provision of services is made possible through a direct grant from Providence and a donation from the Sisters of the Holy Names, earmarked specifically for outreach. The SNJM original dream was that Mary’s Woods would not only serve those on this campus, but be able to share gifts and resources with those beyond our walls. Director of Home Care Services Megan Thompson, who oversees the services that Mary’s Woods provides, said “It’s an honor to use our expertise and expand the Mary’s Woods mission of service and compassion to those in need.”
