How do you help people in my community?
The Hebrew Home of Greater Washington is a local non-profit serving the Washington DC area. Our services are open to all in the community.
Why do you need my support?
Over 70 percent of the Hebrew Home’s residents are Medicaid recipients, only half of the income received for nursing services is from Medicaid reimbursement. This gap creates a significant budget shortfall and threatens the superior level of care that we’ve worked so hard to provide for the needy elders in our community. Currently, the gap between Medicaid reimbursement and the actual cost of the care we provide is $51 per person, per day. Broad based community support, with gifts of all levels, is essential to the Home’s ability to ensure the highest quality of care.
How can I be sure that you will use my money wisely and won't waste it?
The Hebrew Home’s operations are monitored by the state of Maryland and we have a strong volunteer board that oversees nursing, financial and fundraising operations. Our annual report is accessible on our website, www.hebrew-home.org.
Can I Volunteer? How?
The Hebrew Home welcomes volunteers, as they play an important role in meeting the needs of our residents. All of our volunteers are screened and trained before working with residents. If you wish to volunteer please contact our Director of Volunteers at 301-770-8332.
