JFS Receives Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Grant for Another Pair of Hands

Program provides homemaker services to people living with cancer

DENVER - April 11, 2006 - The Denver Metropolitan Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation recently awarded Jewish Family Service of Colorado (JFS) a grant of $42,375 to support Another Pair of Hands. This program - part of the agency's Solutions for Seniors/Care Connection Department -- provides frequent and affordable homemaker and care management services to individuals of all faiths living with cancer. The Komen Foundation grant will be used to provide services to clients facing the challenge of living with breast cancer.

By offering weekly in-home services, including housecleaning, meal preparation, grocery shopping, and laundering, Another Pair of Hands helps its clients focus their limited energy and resources on their families and their health. Services are provided on a sliding-fee scale based on income. Another Pair of Hands also helps clients access resources they need outside the home such as support groups and food assistance, guides clients through the Medicare/Medicaid process, and advocates for them regarding medical care. The goal is to create a single-point-of-entry for services, advocacy, and support.

Each year, Another Pair of Hands assists 30-35 breast cancer clients between the ages of 25 and 80, who are uninsured, underinsured, or live on a budget that does not allow them access to this type of treatment support. Through the generosity of the Komen Foundation, JFS will continue assisting these clients, serving approximately one-quarter of them at no cost. Also, because of Komen support, Another Pair of Hands is now able to offer its clients living with breast cancer two new services - for one month after a client's death six families will continue to receive homemaker services in an effort to provide a continuum of care; and the program will be able to purchase and use non-toxic cleaning products in an effort to lessen one of the aggravating side-effects of cancer treatment - a compromised sense of smell.

Yvonne Sylvan, Another Pair of Hands program coordinator, says, "This funding will allow us to serve a greater number of people affected by breast cancer and ease families' transitions when they experience a loss. I am grateful to the Denver Metropolitan Affiliate of the Komen Foundation for its continued support of this vital program."

Sylvan is scheduled to speak about Another Pair of Hands at the 2006 Komen Mission Conference, "Many Faces, One Voice," in Washington, D.C. in June. She also was honored to present at this conference in 2002.
