NOMINATE A WORTHY DISABILITY OR DOWN SYNDROME CAREGIVER
The Christopher Smith Foundation (CSF) sincerely appreciates everything that you and your organization does to help Southern Nevadan’s most vulnerable folks. Your dedication and compassion mean so much to those you serve and to their families.
My son Christopher was born with Down syndrome and he lived a full life filled with unconditional love, friends and opportunities because of compassionate caregivers. I created the Christopher Smith Foundation to say thank you to these unsung heroes. Caregivers come in all forms – supportive family members, caring direct care staff, dedicated medical professionals, group home leaders and others. They are the angels among us that offer help, support and kindness to people like Christopher.
One of CSF’s goals is to shine a light on the caregivers who help the most vulnerable and fragile among us. CSF wants to recognize caregivers whose empathy and caring spirit make a true difference in people’s lives through our Caregiver of the Month program that includes a cash gift. Caregiver of the Month honorees will become eligible for further recognition and a larger reward during the annual CSF luncheon each year.
We need your help in identifying these extraordinary caregivers – direct care staff members, medical caregivers, case managers, counselors, group home leaders, volunteers, family members, etc. – who deserve recognition for their kind hearts and selfless acts. If you know of such a person, and I am sure you do, please nominate them for consideration of an award; see the nomination form.
Together, we can help recognize those unsung heroes who help your vulnersable folks enjoy the best lives possible. If you have any questions about the Caregiver of the Month program or would like to learn more about the CSF, please write your message here.
