We Are One Heart Foundation at a Glance
A Bit of Background
We Are One Heart (WA1H) was founded in November 2016 by Pat T. Nixon, RN BSN, MBA. After assuming care for her Father, Pat and her siblings quickly learned that assistance for those who were no longer able to care for themselves was much like a puzzle with several missing pieces.
Hi, I'm Pat! Thanks for visiting our site. WA1H is a small organization with a VERY big mission. I founded this organization in order to change the way that we are approaching care for the elderly and disabled.
Far too often, as a nurse, I am faced with the awful reality of the socioeconomic gap among seniors. Either our elders have done well in planning for the days of decline, we (the children or grandchildren) have done exceptionally well and are able to financially provide for them, or they are left in a gap inclusive of poor care, isolation, depression, and unacceptable conditions for someone who has spent their life loving others.
At the foundation of everything WA1H does is the primary goal... TO SPREAD LOVE... realizing that every situation and individual we encounter shares a heart of our own. Through God's Love, we are all connected.
We will provide housing, assistance, resources, and referrals to seniors and veterans of low and middle income classes. We will work diligently with youth and others to teach skills and develop compassion to shape a future that embraces those who have shaped the past.
This is our story.....
“Bridging the gap between needs and resources for seniors...”
Making A Difference
With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with challenges that our elderly population face. Companionship Outreach is a program designed to provide presence and support to seniors at risk for isolation, depression and other psychosocial deficiencies.
Through volunteer programs both in facility settings and private residences, we are able to make an impact on the lives of seniors while teaching caregivers and our youth what it means to be present and attentive to senior citizens. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.
