Superman’s Foundation Partners with St. Francis Home

 The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, a national non-profit dedicated to improving quality of life for individuals with paralysis, awarded St. Francis Senior Ministries – St. Francis Home, Inc. with a grant to purchase five electric beds.  These beds will be utilized for people with paralysis or partial paralysis.

The Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information, and advocacy.  This mission matches the mission of St. Francis Home, Inc. established in 1869, which exists to create a community where each individual can live life fully.   The Home is a 501(c)3 charity that assists patients regardless of their ability to pay. In an average year, 54%-70% of the patient population is unable to cover their full medical care costs due to being on low income Medicaid or Hospice programs which only cover a portion of the actual expenses.  The Home depends on grants and donations for facility improvements and equipment upgrades.

The Quality of Life grants support fellow nonprofits that mirror the Reeve Foundation’s mission and commitment to foster community engagement, enhance independence and promote self-determination. The program has awarded over 2,700 grants and has distributed over $20 million in grants since 1999 (www.ChristopherReeve.org).

Actor, director, and activist are some of the words used to describe Christopher Reeve. From his first acting experience at age 15, Christopher established a reputation as one of the country’s leading actors.  He went on to make many films, including Superman.  Per the Foundation website ever since he was paralyzed in a 1995 equestrian competition, “…Christopher not only put a human face on spinal cord injury, but he motivated neuroscientists around the world to conquer the most complex diseases of the brain and central nervous system”.  His wife, Dana, served as a model caregiver and eventually developed numerous resources for families to access. Christopher, and Dana, have both passed, however their good work for persons living with disabilities is ever ongoing through this Foundation and its partners.

In the last few years, St. Francis Home has worked to try to replace all manual hand crank beds in the 132 room facility with new electric beds with remotes that allow patients self independence, confidence, and improved quality of life.  “We are so appreciative to the national Reeve Foundation and many local funds including the Meshech Frost Fund, National Machinery Foundation, Betty Jane Memorial Fund of the Tiffin Community Foundation, and many private donors, “states Ann Keefe, St. Francis Community Grant Writer, “It is really awesome to see so many working together to help meet the basic needs of local people”.

After these donations, there are now just 33 beds left to replace in 2017 (at nearly $2,000 per bed); if you are able to contribute, please contact the Mission Advancement Office at 419-447-0435 ext. 153. Donations are tax deductible as allowed by IRS law.

For more information on opportunities to partner with St. Francis Community, please visit the website at www.sfctiffin.org.   For more information on the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, please visit www.ChristopherReeve.org .
