Caring for Those Who Care

The care that has been shown to Genesis employees and managed employees has certainly grown through the years.  Since the Genesis Employee Foundation began its good work in 2005, an average of 15 grants requests were processed monthly.  In 2010, the average monthly number has grown to 85.

If you are, or if you know a Genesis employee or managed employee who is suffering an unforeseen hardship, you can complete a Request for Employee Grant Form.

Below, you will find heart-warming stories from our Foundation ambassadors, who, in spite of their hardships, keep their spirits high:
