Working Together to Make a Difference
Jackson Nurse Professionals has been making a meaningful impact on our community since 2006 by donating our time, talents and resources to local charities and nonprofits. In the last year alone, our team has donated over 125 hours of service to the community and through a partnership with Jackson Healthcare, provided much needed holiday gifts to over 40 kids at a local foster home.
Whether it’s the IOA Corporate 5k or the annual Fun Day for a local youth home, Jackson Healthcare and Jackson Nurse Professionals’ work together to foster an environment of company-wide giving and service that is unmatched in our industry.
Our Commitment to Foster Kids
If you’ve ever heard Rick Jackson, the founder of Jackson Healthcare, tell his moving story about growing up in foster care, you’ll understand our commitment to empowering children in youth homes. We were introduced to Great Oaks Village a few years ago, a youth home in Orlando that houses over 40 kids from 6 to 18 that have been removed from their homes for abuse or neglect, and we’ve been organizing projects and outings for them ever since. During the summer annually we provide backpacks and school supplies to everyone in the home and host awesome day-trips that have included a BBQ, water slides, football, mazes, and a trip to WonderWorks. At the end of every year, the team participates in payroll deductions (matched by Jackson Healthcare) and works to provide gifts to every youth in the home during the Holidays, the loneliest time of year for many of the kids.
