JEVS Care at Home (JCAH) Annual Wellness Visit Initiative Wins Connie Award

Members from the JEVS Human Services Board of Directors (BOD) selected JEVS Care at Home’s Wellness Visit Initiative as the winner of the 2024 Connie Award. This project helps JEVS Care at Home (JCAH) clients by providing rides to their yearly wellness check-ups, which many find difficult to arrange. It also rewards clients for attending these appointments. JCAH will get a $5,000 prize to help pay for the project.

The Connie Award is named after Constance “Connie” Beresin. Connie worked at JEVS Human Services for 11 years as Chief Operating Officer and later as Chief Development Officer. This award, created in 2008, celebrates her commitment to improving our work. Each year, staff nominate projects that make our programs and operations better.

Two other projects in Workforce Development (WD) and Community Living and Home Supports (CLHS) were also celebrated. WD proposed extra training on personal and professional topics ranging from dealing with grief to writing a good resume. CLHS proposed more employment training.

The JEVS BOD thanks everyone who applied for this year’s Connie Award. Picking a winner was a difficult choice. All applications reflected the important work that JEVS does.
