A Family Friend Scholarship Program Providing solutions to the caregiver shortage
We know that our country is struggling with a shortage of nursing staff. Why not be a part of the solution?
A Family Friend has launched a Health Care Foundation to provide paid tuition to our compassionate, dedicated caregivers who want to further their career in nursing.
Caregivers earn their tuition by dedicating three months in the field while being a blessing to our senior community. They can “test the waters” of the nursing community before they make a career decision.
We are proud of Valerie Tate, our first caregiver to graduate from Care One Health Careers school in Raleigh. Valerie joined A Family Friend in November 2019 and day after day, has proven her dedication to health care and her clients.
When A Family Friend offered to assist Valerie with furthering her education, she responded, “They said I wouldn’t amount to anything. Thank you for helping me see my potential.”
Valerie is a true gem. We are so happy to have her with us, and in turn, be part of her growth.
