We invite you to join the movement by participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. When you donate any amount, you’ll help us continue to move wages for our valued and essential staff members and keep them in their jobs. We’ve proven time and time again; high quality compassionate care is essential. Now it’s time we all work to ensure the person providing that care is honored as essential.

People who choose a career that directly supports the health and well-being of others deserve to earn a wage that allows them self-sufficiency. That’s why earlier this year, while weathering cuts in our rates, we advanced starting wages for all care positions to $16.75 per hour.For residential staff, who make up most of our workforce, wages were raised to $17.25, plus more for certain shifts. These steps are significant for many reasons, including ensuring consistent, meaningful support for those who choose our services.

Since its founding in 2012, #GivingTuesday has inspired giving around the world, resulting in greater donations, volunteer hours and activities that bring about real change in communities.

For your gift to have the greatest impact, consider giving through #GivingTuesday. You can also give through ROC the Day. If you have questions about #GivingTuesday, contact Megan Sassenhausen at (585) 340-5715.
