Ascentria Care Alliance
Empowering People. Strengthening Communities.
• Implement human development initiative which will provide solutions to workforce hiring and retention gaps
• Partner with other providers to advocate for additional resources for immigrants and refugees, in-home care clients, and the staff that support them
• Identify opportunities to provide wraparound solutions to clients that allow for more self-sufficiency
• Capitalize on the expansive array of Language Bank interpretation and translation services
Ascentria is celebrating our 150th year of providing a diverse offering of social services to support teen parents, unaccompanied minors, low-income families in need of transportation, immigrants and refugees, seniors, people with cognitive disabilities and those who are managing mental health challenges. This celebration will include special events and special appeals to support current and new, innovative initiatives.
Individuals or corporations interested in making a donation, pledge or exploring gifts of stock, monthly giving, planned giving, sponsorship opportunities or employee matching gift programs are invited to contact our development department at 508-330-1238. Donations are gratefully accepted year-round at www.ascentria.org. A unique way to give is to donate your old or unused vehicle to our Good News Garage program where it will be refurbished and awarded to individuals and families in need of reliable transportation, which helps empower them to move out of poverty and into financial independence and social stability. Go to www.goodnewsgarage.org for more information.
Ascentria volunteers find their work to be impactful, interesting and rewarding.
Tutoring, mentoring new Americans or providing professional services are a few examples of how Ascentria volunteers effect real and lasting change in others. For a complete listing of volunteer opportunities, visit www.ascentria.org/get-involved.
