Officially formed in 1988, the Morrow Home Foundation is committed to helping promote and to financially support the needs of Morrow Memorial Home for the Aged. Furthering quality health care in our community is our other focus.
All gifts, bequests and estates intended for the Home will be administered by the Morrow Memorial Home Foundation. This practice was designed to clearly differentiate gift income from operational income used in managing the daily operations of the Home.
The Foundation promotes programs and projects which enhance Morrow Memorial Home and Apartments or have a positive impact on the elderly in our community. The Elsa Turner Bootstrap Program, chapel renovation, and Morrow Memorial Home Building programs have been the largest projects supported by the Foundation to date. Other projects supported in the last eight years include:
- High school health career scholarships
- Activity Programs
- Covered patio
- St. Claire Mission Clinic
- Hallway decorations
- Mechanical Lifts
- Special Nursing mattresses
- Massage Therapy furnishings
- Pet therapy program and supplies
- Parkview Apartment Furnishings
- Emergency Generator
The Elsie Turner Bootstrapping Program enables employees at Morrow Home to pursue a health-care profession by providing financial assistance for their educational costs. The employee agrees to be employed at Morrow Home in their new professional capacity one year for each $2,000 of financial assistance they receive. This program helps build and maintain professional staff at Morrow Home as well as assisting the employees in advancing into health professional careers. Your gifts to this program will he good investments in people caring for our residents and residents.
