When you make a donation of any amount to the Heritage Christian Services Foundation, you’ll help us to continue to move wages for our valued staff members and keep those essential staff members 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 $15.00 per hour, and for residential staff, who make up most of our workforce, to $15.75, plus more for certain shifts. This step is significant for many reasons, including ensuring consistent, meaningful support for those who choose our services.
Heritage Christian Services, established in 1984, strives to advance an inclusive and equitable community. Our more than 3,000 employees look beyond the traditional to provide services that ensure meaningful and diverse experiences. Based in western New York, with concentrations in the Rochester and Buffalo Niagara regions, we’re innovating and expanding as the needs of our community grow. We serve our community with programs that promote housing options — and the support within them — along with programs that create relevant employment and day habilitation; establish high-quality child care; set the standard for statewide workforce education; ensure robust health and wellness; and embrace self-empowerment.
