LTC Partners Supports National and Local Nonprofits in Response to the COVID-19 Outbreak
Portsmouth, NH (April 2020): LTC Partners has donated a total of $50,000 in recent weeks to numerous local and national organizations in an effort to aid those most impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
"In this time of national emergency, we should try to support those who are making us safe. That includes our health care workers, police, firefighters, drivers, and all those who are on the front lines, and also those charitable nonprofit organizations that are working with the most vulnerable during this pandemic," said LTC Partners CEO Paul Forte. "Now more than ever, it is important that we, as a company, do our part to help."
LTC Partners made donations of $10,000 to each of the following national organizations:
- The Federal Employee Education and Assistance Fund (FEEA), a national nonprofit organization that provides emergency ﬁnancial assistance and scholarships to dedicated civilian federal and postal public servants and their families. LTC Partners has long partnered with FEEA, providing scholarship dollars annually for the children of federal employees.
- Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses, national program of the American Nurses Foundation (the philanthropic arm of the American Nurses Association). This fund provides nurses with mental health support and access to the latest science-based information to protect themselves, prevent infection, and care for those in need.
Regarding the Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses pledge, Forte noted LTC Partners’ special gratitude to nurses for the critical role they are playing in the pandemic, putting themselves at risk in the process. The company itself employs 34 registered nurses, who provide care coordination services to enrollees of the Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP), the largest private long term care insurance program in the country.
LTC Partners also contributed $10,000 to Preble Street, a Portland, ME based nonprofit organization which offers shelter, food, anti-trafficking services, and assistance to low-income families experiencing problems with homelessness, housing, hunger, and poverty.
Finally, LTC Partners made special donations in the amount of $5,000 to each of the following Seacoast organizations, all of which the company has supported previously via annual donations, volunteer efforts, or both:
- Cross Roads House, an emergency and transitional shelter that provides homeless families and individuals in the Seacoast area with basic necessities, as well as tools and guidance for returning to permanent housing.
- Community Action of Strafford County, a nonprofit organization that helps less fortunate residents in Strafford County with food, education, child care, utilities assistance, transportation, housing, and emergency shelter.
- HAVEN, an agency that serves women, men, and children affected by domestic and sexual violence.
- Seacoast Family Promise, a nonprofit that serves families in need, providing family-oriented shelter and day center access; case management financial planning and saving; financial education, including debt reduction, budgeting, and savings; employment and housing assistance; education evaluation; and resources for further education opportunities.
