Improve the quality of life for vulnerable patients by making a donation today.

Associate Assistance

Grateful PatientEstablished in 1989, the St. Louise Associate Assistance Fund has helped countless Ascension St. Vincent’s associates avoid eviction or foreclosure, keep their lights on, feed their families, and meet other unexpected, urgent needs. This fund was instrumental in helping our dedicated caregivers during the pandemic.

Jeremiah's Hope

Jeremiah's HopeSince 2003 Jeremiah’s Hope has graduated hundreds of medical assistants, patient care technicians, sterile processing technicians, administrative medical assistants, and phlebotomists. In 2020, these certification courses were transitioned to Jefferson State Community College, expanding Jeremiah’s Hope to four locations and enabling more flexible hours for students. Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation provides scholarships and support materials for these students.

“God has a plan for everybody, but sometimes that plan needs a little facilitation. There are not enough healthcare personnel to fill all the jobs available locally. Giving to Jeremiah’s Hope is a privilege, because it can help make a lasting impact on someone else’s life,” said supporter Cathy Adams. “This is the most joyful donation we make.”

Make a student’s dream of a healthcare career come true through a scholarship for Jeremiah’s Hope.
