Presbyterian SeniorCare Network residents participate in Save HUD 202 Rally in Washington DC

June 29, 2017

On Tuesday, June 27, 2017 over 50 residents from Presbyterian SeniorCare Network boarded buses in Pittsburgh and headed to Washington DC to participate in the Save HUD 202 Rally.

 The Rally, hosted by LeadingAge, an association representing nonprofit aging services providers, launched a new campaign targeting the Department of Housing and Urban Development Section 202 Housing for the Elderly program (HUD 202). The Rally was only part of the multi-month campaign to convince lawmakers to prevent cuts to 202 programs, maintain 100% funding, and expand funding to create new affordable housing for older adults.

The Section 202 program helps expand the supply of affordable housing with supportive services for the elderly. It provides very low-income elderly with options that allow them to live independently but in an environment that provides support such as cleaning, cooking, transportation, etc. HUD provides capital advances to finance the construction, rehabilitation or acquisition that will serve as supportive housing for very low-income elderly persons, including the frail elderly, and provides rent subsidies for the projects to help make them affordable.

Presbyterian SeniorCare Network has over 30 supportive and affordable housing communities throughout western Pennsylvania, many of those communities funded through HUD or tax credits. Due to the proposed spending cuts, funding for HUD programs is at risk and would reduce the availability of affordable housing for vulnerable, older adults in the Pittsburgh area. Nationally, this would affect more than 128,000 Section 202 units. Of the 4 million older adult households eligible for HUD rental assistance programs, only 1.4 million receive such assistance due to lack of funding.

Pictured: Presbyterian SeniorCare Network residents attended the Rally because they wanted their voices heard – they also wore bright yellow shirts with our logo - they also wanted to be seen fighting for their cause!

Presbyterian SeniorCare Network Wins Engaging Pittsburgh Award

April 10, 2017

On April 5, 2017, Presbyterian SeniorCare Network was awarded the PHRA Engaging Pittsburgh Award in the "transparency" category for our annual Passport Program

About the Passport Program: Annually, each employee develops three Passport goals for the year with the understanding that their personal commitment matters to our organization achieving goals on behalf of the residents served. In a very real and clear way, each employees Passport Goals contribute to the achievement of our strategic plan goals and our ongoing success and sustainability.

In 2017, our Passport theme is "United at the Heart," which offers a meaningful and "heartwarming" way to help team members connect to purpose and to reach their goals. To help bring the theme to life, we have a Passport Team made up of several employees from across our Network. The team helps to plan an event that brings everyone together to celebrate their goals. The celebration not only encourages the completion of the current year's goals, but also celebrates achieving the previous year's goals.

At the awards ceremony, members of our Passport Team accept the award.

From L to R: Caren Shadeck (Washington campus), Grace Smith (Longwood at Home), Adam Plott (Washington campus), Mary Kate Bartley (Oakmont campus), Karen Bushmire (SeniorCare Network), Beth Mickle (Shenango on the Green), Liz Thompson (Oakmont campus) and Paul Winkler, President and CEO, Presbyterian SeniorCare Network. 

About the PHRA Awards: For over a decade the Pittsburgh Human Resources Association's (PHRA) Engaging Pittsburgh: Innovative People Practices has recognized employees and employers from across the region who have demonstrated creativity in designing business practices that have significantly contributed towards organizational and employee achievements.
