As I look back on 2017, I cannot help but reflect on another wonderful year at St. Paul’s. We have served San Diego seniors by educating lawmakers, providing “sundries” through the generous contributions from the community to those in need, continued our tradition of excellent service to seniors and children, and so much more. We are pleased to share some highlights enclosed in
On June 7, I traveled to Washington DC where the National PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly) Association asked me to testify before the Ways and Means Health Subcommittee, U.S. House of Representatives “Hearing on Promoting Integrated and Coordinated Care for Medicare Beneficiaries.” I answered many questions that helped to enlighten the legislators as to the needs of our seniors, and those across the country.
On October 25, Assembly Member Todd Gloria requested that we participate on a panel for the State Assembly Aging and Long-Term Care Committee, “Informational Hearing on Services for Seniors to Age at Home.” The success of the St. Paul’s PACE supportive services housing program was the topic of the presentation.
I am so very grateful for the leadership of the dedicated volunteer Boards of Directors who spend many hours to lead and govern, and attend countless meetings and special functions for St. Paul’s Senior Services. Every year they work selflessly to help fulfill the vision and mission.
Thank you to our donors who provide the many extras such as outings, gift bags, sundries, warm blankets, and funding for capital improvements, and the new programs for the many seniors we serve. St. Paul’s appreciates your generosity, and we recognize we could not do it all without your support.
Together we all make up the team who serve with care and compassion, and I thank you and wish you a very blessed 2018.
Cheryl Wilson, Chief Executive Officer
