TUCKER, Ga. (March 11, 2019)—Georgia Baptist Health Care Ministry Foundation (GBHCMF) honored this year’s grant recipients at its 14th Annual Grant Award Luncheon, held on Feb. 7, 2019 at the Georgia Baptist Missions and Ministry Center. Fifty-one grant recipients were recognized at the event, where the GBHCMF Board honored those ministries throughout the state that have demonstrated effective and efficient direct health care services to their local communities. Friends of Disabled Adults and Children (FODAC) received a $100,000 grant, which will support the non-profit’s statewide mission to provide home medical equipment (HME), such as wheelchairs, hospital beds, walkers, patient lifts and shower benches, at little or no cost to those with disabilities.
“This grant will assist with supporting and expanding our statewide delivery programs, providing 14 partner agencies with HME to support our mission of helping those with injuries to rehabilitate and those with disabilities to engage more fully in life,” said Chris Brand, president and CEO of FODAC. “We are grateful to the foundation for their support of FODAC’s service and our mission of providing HME to those in need.”
Organizations receiving an award represented some of the most efficient hands-on providers of health care services in the state. They have also demonstrated excellent core competency service to those in need of health care. It is the GBHCMF’s hope that these funds will help lighten the burden of those who offer health care services as well as those who ultimately receive those benefits.
“GBHCMF is both honored and blessed to provide financial support to all these ministries,” said J. Robert White, president and CEO, GBHCMF. “Organizations like FODAC have demonstrated an active service that aligns with our core mission to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ through the provision of direct health care services.”
