Thank You from the Nazareth Home Foundation

Thank You from the Nazareth Home Foundation

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, the Nazareth Home Foundation would like to thank all of you who have supported our programs and facilities in 2021 through generous donations.  

In September, we awarded eight team members with scholarships to various colleges/universities to support their continued professional growth. This funding came from our donors who stepped forward to support the Sandra King Education and Excellence Fund.  

Thanks to the Kentucky Colonels, we added a new spa tub to Charity Court on our Highlands Campus, ensuring the ladies there can have peaceful and relaxing baths.  

We’ve also been able to support our elders in special gift opportunities throughout the year, thanks to our many community partners that continue to show up and love on our elders.  

These gifts mean so much to our organization and are part of what allows Nazareth Home to continue its mission. If you have questions on how to engage with our Foundation, please contact our Director of Development, Roberta Steutermann, at  

As we close out this year, we are so thankful for your support and look forward to what 2022 will bring.

Seven employees awarded the Sandra King Excellence and Education Fund Scholarship

Today we announced the first-ever recipients of the Sandra King Excellence and Education Fund Scholarship. The Fund awarded a total of $10,500 to seven of our employees. Each will receive $1,500 to further their education in long-term care. 

A scholarship committee chose applicants based on their professional qualifications, commitment to the profession and letters of recommendation. 

Nazareth Home Director of Development Roberta Steutermann says the focus of the scholarships is to empower staff to further their education and help relieve the burden of overwhelming tuition.

“By investing in our team members and giving back to them, we strengthen our entire organization and provide our elders with the excellence they deserve,” Roberta said. “We were incredibly impressed by all the applicants we had this year and are excited for them to take this next step toward bettering their future.”

The 2021 Sandra King Excellence and Education Fund Scholarship recipients are:

      • Haley Preston, Sullivan University
      • Meagan Compton, Sullivan College of Nursing
      • Jeron Spence Sr., Jefferson Community and Technical College
      • Yhemeko Croom, Spalding University
      • LaTasha Moss, Simmons College of Kentucky
      • Tatiana Thornton, University of Florida
      • Esther Theodore, Galen College of Nursing

The Sandra King Education and Excellence Fund was established in 2020 and is named for Sandra King, who served at Nazareth Home for 26 years and recently retired. King was an avid learner throughout her career. As the previous Director of Nursing and later the Associate Administrator, King instilled a culture of education at Nazareth Home. 

Individuals, community groups and local businesses can make monetary donations to the fund online at Donors may also mail checks to Nazareth Home, 2000 Newburg Road, Louisville, Ky., 40205. All donations are 100 percent tax-deductible and will directly support the employees who attend college and take advanced certification classes.

Nazareth Homes Foundation is committed to excellence in care

Nazareth Homes Foundation is committed to excellence in care

Nazareth Home is a nonprofit long-term care facility offering skilled, personal and memory care, along with inpatient and outpatient rehab. Being a nonprofit means we do not have a corporate owner or board of directors taking profits from our operation. However, it also means that we can’t pull resources from a corporate owner for improvements, updates or new technology. For this reason, we created the Nazareth Homes Foundation in 2020.

The Foundation has several focus areas for this upcoming year:

    • Workforce Development
    • Community Worship
    • Community Hospitality
    • Campus Funds
    • Quality of Life and Benevolent Fund

Through the support of our donors last year, we awarded seven employee scholarships to staff working to grow their skillset; began Nazareth Home Forward, an apprenticeship program for employees; and completed several quality of life programs at both campuses.

Nazareth Home is committed to continuing our level of excellence and providing person-centered care. We are able to do this through the donations and gifts we receive from those impacted by and committed to our work.

We hope as you consider your charitable giving, estate giving and memory giving, you will consider Nazareth Homes Foundation. To learn more, visit

    • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for staff
    • Technology like Theora Clear, which helps monitor the temperatures of each individual who enters our campuses
    • Additional staffing
    • Unexpected and unanticipated expenses due to COVID-19
