What Is Our Mission?
Discover the purpose of our nonprofit organization
At Greater Mercer Area Healthcare Foundation, we have one simple-but crucial mission-to reduce the shortage of Certified Nurses Aides and Home Health Aides in new Jersey. The demand for Certified nurses aides is increasing at a rapid pace, and there is already a shortage of Nurses aides in our hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities.
Through this organization, we hope to:
- Make it financially possible for individuals to pursue their certified nursing certification
- Make it financially possible for people who need care at home or 1:1 care in a nursing facility to access that care.
- Educate people about the nursing home shortage in new Jersey
- Collect donations for scholarships for those hoping to obtain their Nurses Aide certification, and to help those in need of Home Care services.
Where do we focus our outreach:
We do everything possible to educate people about the nurses aide shortage in New Jersey and come up with solutions. We focus our outreach in:
- High Schools
