I n 2008, the entire nation was affected by a financial crisis,
  the scope of which hasn’t been felt in several decades.
Our organization felt it with a decrease in contributions.
Although we did experience the drop in donations, we had
many donors who continued to renew their commitment to
our mission.
Fundraising in these economic times is more challenging
than ever. We rely on public support to help with insurance
reimbursement shortfalls and to fund programs that we
offer free of charge to our patients and the community at
large. Our dedication to serving the public’s healthcare
needs drives the programs offered at no cost, especially
to underserved members of the community including
homebound seniors. We will continue to pursue our work
towards offering health services for the benefit of the entire
We thank all of our donors in 2008 as well as those in past
years and ask that you kindly remember us when making
your philanthropic decisions. Your support of the VNA of
Hudson Valley contributes to the well being of all residents
who need our services.

Responding to a shortage of home health aides, VNA                                Hispanic: 1%
HHS reinstated a training program for home health aide
certification that was sanctioned by the NYS Department
                                                                                    Other: 1%

providing assistance to many senior residents in the county,

Serving Westchester and Putnam County can be challenging
at times as many of the northern areas are more remote
and there is limited access to public transportation. VNA
HHS continues to offer its van service to transport aides
to and from individual homes, serving those who reside in
hard to reach areas.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has indicated that
employment is expected to increase by 15.6 million jobs
during a ten year period that began in 2006. Almost 75%
of this growth will be in service positions. In the number
three spot is home health aides with a projected growth
of 48.7%. It is clear that this trend is in direct response
to our population living longer and wishing to remain
in the comfort and safety of their own homes. VNA
HHS continues to be pro-active in meeting the needs of
individuals requiring assistance and those wishing to gain
employment in a growing industry.
