Our New Journey Gives Help & Hope
April 4, 2018
It is hard to believe that it has been eleven years since Anne Ciavaglia McMahon partnered with hip to launch Our New Journey. Focused on helping one family at a time, this service gives help and hope to families faced with the onset of illness or disability.
Since inception, Our New Journey has helped more than 1,200 families and receives new referrals weekly. Each family gains access to available services that are designed to address their individual needs. Our New Journey assists those dealing with the complicated maze of insurance benefits, physical care needs, personal transitions, home modifications and location of available public services, all of which can be a full time job in itself. Caregiver or consumer, either way, it is overwhelming.
Our New Journey‘s most compelling aspects are responding to the shared daily challenges each caregiver encounters, as well as the program’s ability to make a difference through practical guidance or by providing limited financial help for direct care services.
Through various fundraising efforts and private donations, Our New Journey helps families with limited financial support for homecare or personal needs, ultimately allowing them to live in their community of choice.
In order for Our New Journey to continue to build and to provide help, increasing resources through donations or various types of volunteer support is necessary. Please visit ournewjourney.org and refer to the About Us section which highlights the program’s mission.
