State of the Heart would like to thank the Mercer County Civic Foundation for their continued support. Recently, the Foundation granted $4,000 to State of the Heart’s Charity Care program. As a nonprofit hospice, State of the Heart does not turn any patient away due to their inability to pay. Money received from outside sources enables the agency to provide quality care to patients and families in our community who are facing a life-limiting illness.
The Mercer County Civic Foundation, created in 1960, has worked diligently to establish permanently endowed funds for the benefit of the local communities. The Foundation makes grants to qualifying local organizations that work to meet the needs of community residents. The Mercer County Civic Foundation is a Community Foundation committed to enhancing the quality of life for the people of Mercer County, Ohio, by cultivating, managing and disbursing charitable resources.
“Our Charity Care program is in place to ensure that we are able to serve people regardless of their ability to pay,” shared Erica Wentworth, Business Development Specialist for State of the Heart Care. “Through the support of donors and foundations such as the Mercer County Civic Foundation, every patient receives the same high level of care, no matter their financial situation.” Thank you once again to the Mercer County Civic Foundation for all that you do for the residents of Mercer County.
