The season of giving is upon us! Last year, for the 15 days leading up to Christmas, Helen's Heroes was able to provide 150 gift bags to patients in the community facing social determinants of health. As gift bags were delivered, we were able to see the joy that was brought to individuals as they opened their gifts. Patients received socks and blankets to snuggle in, games and puzzles to play with and books to color with.

This holiday season, we are striving to do the same, and we hope that you can join us in spreading a little extra cheer! Each gift bag costs $20, but any contribution is appreciated and brings us one step closer to meeting our goal. Those who donate will have the opportunity to dedicate their bag(s) to someone and have their name posted on the Helen's Heroes gift wall.

Our First Patient Meal was a Success!

 

Over the last six years of building and developing Advanced Home Health, it became evident to Rich Griffin and his partner Maureen Kail, that many people in our communities are not receiving services or resources they so desperately need.  These individuals face social determinants of health such as living in remote locations, financial hardships and having limited access to healthcare, or not having enough food when arriving home from a lengthy stay in the hospital or skilled nursing home.   

 

This was the reason behind Helen’s Heroes, a nonprofit organization that was started in 2020 and named in honor of Rich’s grandmother. “This organization is based on my grandmother’s love, as she always provided support and guidance to my family and me growing up. She was the guiding light that I needed throughout my life, and I am honored to continue sharing that light to help others in our local communities.”  

 

Today marks a milestone for Helen’s Heroes, as we delivered our first patient’s meals, that consist of Heart-Healthy products and is also dietician approved by our very own, Ronda Seelig!  Tammy Yednak was grateful for being our first patient to receive the meals. “You will affect many people in a positive way,” said Tammy, “I have lost my appetite since being home from the hospital, but this will help me get it back so I can recover quicker!”

OUR STORY

MicrosoftTeams-image (1).png

Over the last six years of building and developing Advanced Home Health, it became evident that many people in our communities are not receiving the proper medical care and services they so desperately need. These individuals face social determinants of health such as living in remote locations, financial hardships, and not having access to healthcare.

 

My business partner, Maureen, and I have helped these families as much as possible, however, we realized there is so much more we have to do! 

There are a few occasions in our lives where we are provided an opportunity to do something beyond ourselves, something that will change people's lives for the better, and our hope is that Helen's Heroes will serve a vital role in improving the lives of patients and individuals in our local communities.

 

Our organization was based on my grandmother's love, to provide support, peace of mind, and guidance to my family and I when we were growing up. She was the guiding light that I needed throughout my life and I am honored to continue sharing that light to help others in our local communities.

Yours in service,

 

Rich Griffin, President of the Board
