The Cares Foundation
The Abri Health Care Services’ Cares Foundation is an employee-run, employee-supported 501(c) (3) charity whose mission is to help Abri Health Care team members who are affected by hardship due to an event beyond their control. We accomplish this by providing team members financial aid that can be used to help pay for necessary living expenses, such as housing, utilities, food, clothing and other basic necessities. All requests for assistance are kept confidential.
Who is eligible to receive assistance?
Only Abri Health Care’s team members may receive assistance through The Cares Foundation. Recipients must be full or part time Abri Health Care Services team members at the time of the event causing the hardship, as well as when assistance is provided. They cannot have received financial assistance from The Cares Foundation within the past 12 months. Situations must be a result of an unexpected event, catastrophe or unavoidable situation. The event causing the hardship typically must have occurred in the previous three months. Scenarios that meet the criteria for assistance are: personal hardship (fire, accident, funeral, etc…), medical expenses (related to an accident or critical illness), natural disaster or other qualifying emergency or crisis situations, which will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Who can contribute to The Cares Foundation?
All Abri Health Care Services team members, vendors, affiliated physicians, patients and the general public can make a tax-deductible donation to the fund. Donations can be received by personal check or payroll deduction.
