Renee Steffen, our Executive Director, shares her thoughts on this past year:
“As 2017 comes to a close, I am grateful for the dedicated, tight-knit nonprofit community in the Mid-Ohio Valley. As Executive Director, I get to experience this on a daily basis. Reflecting on the past year, I am inspired by the conversations about how to tackle the opioid crisis, the creative ways that gaps in the behavioral health system are being addressed, and the significant health improvements that people living with diabetes have seen through the assistance of community health workers, to name only a few examples. With everyone working together on the most pressing health challenges in the region, I know significant progress will be made in 2018!” ... See MoreSee Less
We asked SHF board member Josh Scakacs what draws him to our mission. He said, "The Sisters Health Foundation’s mission aligns closely with my own personal values and professional goals. The foundation takes a broad view of health and recognizes that to most effectively improve the health of our region we must address the biological, psychological, social, spiritual, and economic well-being of the entire community. As a board member, I have the opportunity to support the work of organizations that make our community a healthier place to live, work, and play. It is an honor to contribute to such crucial work, and I am excited to be a part of a foundation that truly cares about improving the health of our community. An important part of the foundation mission involves collaborative relationship building. By working together, we can build upon the efforts of others and create something truly special, a happy and healthy community that we are proud to call home." ... See MoreSee Less
