"Thanks for helping me hear again! If it weren't for you, I would not hear right now. You are so awesome! I can hear the birds sing, I can hear my family talk to me, the TV isn't full blast. It's so awesome!! Thanks again, you changed my life."

"Tashery" is a quadrapalegic living on the reservation near the Four Corners area. Her household survives at less than 60% of Federal Poverty Limits. Her only caretaker is her grandmother. She was in need of a Hoyer Lift to get her from her bed to her wheelchair and back into her bed. We were able to provide that lift for Tashery and her grandmother.

"Helen" is in her 90's but is able to live quite independently. Storms left their mark on her place, with branches on her roof, a broken sprinkler head and a few other problems. With the generous hard work of our volunteer handymen, Helen didn't have to get on her roof and take care of this, which she threatened to do! She is that independent and we like to help her stay that way!
We call it "The Good Deeds Challenge" and our goal is to bring the love of community service to elementary age children. Here at the Rocky Mountain Care Foundation we are passionate about service and really want to instill that passion in kids early on...see more
The students as Liz Beck's Washington Elementary School in Bountiful had so much fun doing service projects for their community that they decided to KEEP doing it. In the words of one 5th Grader: "We're going to be so proud of ourselves!" We believe time spent serving others is a great deterrent to bullying! Keep up the great work kids!

~The lower a persons income, the more likely he/she is to have health issues, and health issues may even be the cause for poverty for some.
The Rocky Mountain Care Foundation is committed to the goal of minimizing barriers that limit healthcare accessibility for individuals without financial or insurance resources. The Foundation offers a charitable care program for patients who qualify for assistance. If funds are available, the Foundation may subsidize the cost of services provided by a healthcare entity in full or at a discount, for underinsured patients with limited financial resources. Financial eligibility is determined by family size, income percentages in relation to the Federal Poverty Guidelines and extenuating circumstances. Healthcare services may include procedures, medications and/or equipment determined to be valuable and/or necessary to meet a patient's medical needs. We have purchased eyeglasses, dentures, hearing aids, grab bars, shower chairs, paid for hospice care, home care, co-payments, deductibles, prescriptions - whatever it takes for those in need to receive essential healthcare services.
Our community outreach volunteer program. "DUO" (Do Unto Others) will provide critical yet minor home repairs as well as seasonal yard maintenance for homeowners in Davis County, that are low income seniors or those living with disabilities. In formal partnerships with Americorps VISTA we will be able to bring these services to our community. It is the goal of "DUO" to help this vulnerable population remain in their homes and independent for as long as possible. Sometimes, a neighbor's independence, depends on you.
We call it “The Good Deeds Challenge” and our goal is to bring the love of community service to elementary age children. Here at the Rocky Mountain Care Foundation we are passionate about service, and really want to instill that passion in kids early on. We want to help teachers do that with their students by bringing the challenge to as many area elementary schools as we can!
