Off campus, a few volunteers and staff began the process last week of selecting fabrics and finishes for the new buildings. Special thanks go out to our selection committee members including Martha Soltesz and Carol Koranda!

Foundations have already been poured for the new building right next to Robison.

Walls are beginning to be framed and are going up next.

Down below Robison, work is still happening to level the ground for the new parking lot area and construction.

More construction information soon. Stay tuned.

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.
