The Saber Strong Foundation is an employee-run charitable organization that will raise money through fundraising activities by Saber’s employees and their families at Saber’s nursing home communities. All funds raised will help Saber employees who have been approved for an award from the Saber Strong Employee Hardship Response Program, due to a bona fide emergency, such as severe illness, fire, theft, natural disaster, and/or death of a spouse/child/immediate family member.

Fundraising has started through our Acts of Kindness Calendar event. Each month will have a fundraiser theme with the goal of at least two fundraisers each month.

We also began accepting payroll deductions on October 1, 2021, with all money raised going to the Saber Strong Foundation. Please see your payroll coordinator who can provide you with the appropriate form. You can use payroll deduction for either a one-time gift or a recurring gift for each paycheck. Your contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law and will be reported on your Form W-2 for the year.

 


The Saber Strong Employee Hardship Response Program was established and funded by Saber Healthcare Group originally in 2020 and currently to be able to continue to assist team members, The Saber Strong Foundation was created for fundraising efforts.

Testimonials

"To have an organization that cares about it's employees' and assists with real life issues they may be having, truly speaks to Saber's integrity!"

"…. suffered not only a financial burden, but also a mental breakdown! The financial award allowed for me to cover ancillary expenses, and ensure that all loose ends were tied up and I had no additional worries. I am truly thankful for what Saber has done for me and my family"

"Employee was brought to tears when I informed her of the generous gift that the Saber Strong Foundation was able to provide to her. She stated she wasn’t sure how she was going to provide for her family being off work, and that the gift from the foundation made sure they would be ok"

"To the Saber Strong Foundation, I would like to thank each and every one that was involved with helping donate funds towards my new home. You guys did not have to help but you guys did and for that I am very very grateful and thankful for all that Saber Healthcare has done for me. You guys helped me put a down payment on my new home. Also the funds helped me get new clothes and shoes"

"I did not plan on having Stage 3 cancer. I did not plan on being out of work for a prolonged period. I had never elected short-term or long-term disability because I did not plan on needing it. Then the unexpected happened, and I did not have a plan at all. That's when my supervisor reminded me about the Saber Strong Foundation. I completed a short application describing my unexpected change of plans, and they stepped in to help. It was such a BLESSING!!! Saber Strong helped bridge a gap and get my family and I through a very unexpected change of plans. You do not ever know what life is going to throw at you, but it is a blessing to know that we at Saber look out for each other through the Saber Strong Foundation. My family and I are very thankful for the help it provided during our time of need."

"in March of 2021, I was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer with a cantaloupe size mass. I had surgery and went through 6 months of chemotherapy. I am so grateful that I worked at London Health and Rehab. My administrator, Fred Carpenter and my DOR, Ruby Ferguson were amazing through this journey. This blessed journey of recover left me with a large medical bill. Jim Boylen, VP of Rehab services, reminded Ruby of Saber’s Strong Foundation and they submitted my story to this program. I was amazed at the generosity of my company as they awarded me a large sum of money to pay my medical bills. I want to formally thank Saber Healthcare and Saber Strong Foundation for your support through this journey. Knowing that I work for such a caring work-family has made such a difference!"

"When I was on maternity leave I couldn't wait to get bacb to work. My bills were piled up from 3 months with no pay, my car was about to get repossessed, and I didn't know what to do. After about a week bacb to work my son became sick and had to be hospitalized for a week. Unfortunately, I missed a few weeks, being in Chop with my son. I knew that I needed to be at work, but I couldn't let my newborn be sick in the hospital alone, so I stayed with him. I felt like I had no way to get my finances back on track Along with my postpartum and my stress from falling so far behind with my bills I began to really fall into a depression. I was starting to lose hope, that's when I decided to apply for the hardship fund. After a few short weeks I was granted the fund, it honestly was such a huge blessing to my children and I. I'm forever grateful for the financial assistance I've been bless with, and I'll always remember how Saber Health was here to help me when I was at one of my weakest times."

"I am battling a serious health issue which has cost me to be out of work for an extended period of time. During this time period I didn’t have pto time for the full time period I was out so some of my days off I was not paid for. I have a really big stack of medical bills pilling up as well as prescriptions and Doctor Appointments that need paid. Thru the saber strong foundation I was truly blessed to be rewarded financial assistance in order to help me pay my bills. For everyone who contributes to this program and those that run it I am so very thankful, you made a difference in my life."
