Home Health United Earns Awards & Accolades

Created and organized by Home Health United – Hospice volunteer Jamie Pauls, this fundraising event is in its third year. This year the event was a resounding success, raising funds for Camp GLOW, Home Health United’s grief support day camp for kids.

Home Health United Gives Back
United Way / United Fund
Each year Home Health United employees from across our service area work together to raise funds for area United Ways and United Funds. Through office fundraisers, donations, and causal for a cause Fridays our employees have shown their dedication to the communities we serve.
We are pleased to announce that not only have we met our organizational goal by raising more than $18,500, we also were awarded the Best Practices Award.
Holiday Giving from Our House to Yours
Volunteers at the St. Clare Hospice House in Baraboo make regular shopping trips to Pierces Marketplace to fill the cupboards for patients during their stays. Over theÂ year, the House account builds “points” which can be used to purchase groceries. This year, Home Health United has used our accumulated points to purchase nine turkeys and meal fixings for the Baraboo Food Pantry.
