Ralph Wilson Foundation Approves Caregiver Navigator Grant

I’m happy to report we’ve been selected to receive a $25,000 grant for a new Caregiver Navigator program from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Legacy Funds, administered through the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo. This program will assist caregivers in finding services and support systems like adult daycare, respite care, health insurance and other financial aid, among others. It could result in many referrals to our members HomeCare & Hospice, Lutheran Social Services and Olean Medical Group, in addition to our good friends at the Offices for the Aging and Departments of Social Services in Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties. As always, I'd like to thank the Board of Directors for their continued support and STHCS staff for seeing through another successful grant process.
Lead Smart Partnership Offers Certification Classes at STHCS

Based on a collaboration formed at the Southern Tier Lead Smart Partnership meeting, STHCS has teamed up with Olean’s Rural Revitalization Corp. to offer Lead Safe Renovator certification classes to reduce environmental hazards leading to lead poisoning. On July 20, nine local contractors spent eight hours at our new training center at 150 North Union Street with a ZOTApro trainer to become certified lead-safe renovators. We will be hosting two additional lead-safe trainings here at STHCS on Aug. 17 and Sept. 21, 2018. The Southern Tier Lead Smart Partnership also has developed informational displays regarding the hazards of lead-based paint exposure that have been placed at local hardware stores. For more information or to register for an upcoming lead-safe training, click here or call (716) 373-4100.
