Today we break ground!

Today we are breaking ground on The Harold Schnitzer Health & Rehabilitation Care Center. We are also looking forward to a full renovation of the Robison Jewish Health Center once the new facility is complete! We could not have come this far toward our goal of creating a state-of-the-art 21st century rehabilitation and long-term care center – without our community.invite_front-01

We have been so encouraged by the responses from our Jewish community and beyond. We are very close to raising all the funds needed for our new GREEN HOUSE MODEL® for a long-term care household and rehabilitation facility – both with all private rooms and bathrooms!

We have raised nearly 19 million dollars and now we need help from YOU and your community to make our dream a reality. This project is just too important for you not to be involved. Participating is quick and easy. You can make a Mitzvah with an online donation right now at Dignity By Design Webpage.

We are kicking off this final effort today and hoping to complete this by Rosh Hashanah. You can help us to make this happen. Feel free to check out the site and/or call us with any questions you may still have at 503.535.4422.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Lance Steinberg
Board President

Cedar Sinai Park Receives $50,000 Capital Campaign Grant

from The Oregon Community Foundation

Cedar Sinai Park announced today the award of a $50,000 grant from The Oregon nnh_west_elevationCommunity Foundation for the new Harold Schnitzer Health and Rehabilitation Care Center, said David Fuks, Cedar Sinai Park (CSP) Chief Executive Officer.

The Oregon Community Fund awarded this gift in support of the organization’s campaign to build the 48-bedroom residential facility to support elders and person with disabilities through a “household” model.

“The Harold Schnitzer Health and Rehabilitation Care Center will use The Household Model to provide our most fragile community members a care environment that enhances functioning, increases dignity and significantly improves quality of care and quality of life,” said Fuks. “Research has shown that even very fragile elders function at a higher level in a household care setting.”

The grant was awarded from discretionary and/or advised funds, including the Cornelius and Mildred Dixon Memorial Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation which provided $12,700, the George and Helen Largey Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation which provided $11,600, the H.J. and Grace Sandberg Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation which provided $14,700 and the Sigel/Wagenknecht Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation which provided $11,000.

“OCF is proud to support Cedar Sinai Park in their expansion of the new Harold Schnitzer Health and Rehabilitation Care Center, a 48-bedroom residential facility,” said Kathleen Cornett, Vice President of Grants & Programs. “The expanded center will provide tremendous programming and support for aging Oregonians and persons with disabilities.”

“The importance of this support from The Oregon Community Foundation is not as much in the dollars provided toward our goal,” stated Jim Winkler, CSP Capital Campaign Chair. “as it is in the credibility which comes from OCF’s involvement with our project.”

The mission of The Oregon Community Foundation is to improve life in Oregon and promote effective philanthropy. OCF works with individuals, families, businesses and organizations to create charitable funds to support the community causes they care about. Through these funds OCF awards nearly $70 million annually in grants and scholarships.

Concert pianist Alice Herz Sommer was a 109-year old Holocaust survivor, the oldest in the world, when the documentary was made about her.

As an organization that supports elders in our community as they age, the message of life-long optimism in the face of tragedy resonates strongly. We hope you will consider joining us for a showing of the film, light refreshments, a visit to the museum after the presentation and some information on our Capital Campaign and the Life and Legacy project in collaboration with the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation.
