Start a Chapter
Start a Three Wishes For Ruby’s Residents chapter where you live!
There are people throughout North America interested in giving back and helping the elderly living in our nursing homes. We want to build a strong organization that everyone will be proud to serve and that means a controlled plan of growth. We currently have chapters in Ohio and beginning in Florida.
We ARE accepting letters of inquiry to begin a chapter in your area. To help all of you jump start that process and ensure success, here are a few tips you can use initiate a chapter in your area.
Note- these are for people who want to raise funds/donations through their group or chapter. If you want to help without fundraising, we can do that a lot easier! Stay tuned for those projects and connections.
- Contact several colleagues, friends or family and ask if they can help you start a group. We recommend a core group of 3-5 people that are committed to making a chapter of Three Wishes for Ruby's Residents work.
- The themes of our organization include connecting the generations so we suggest reaching out to a potential team member such as a teacher, youth leader, etc who can help you accomplish that goal. Other titles of great contacts in the long-term care setting include local Ombudsman, Advanced Practice Nurses who practice in long-term care, marketers, medical directors of long-term care, social workers and your state’s association of long-term care associates as well. Having people familiar with long-term care on your team is invaluable but not a requirement,
- Schedule a meeting to get yourself organized, create a target list of nursing homes to volunteer, contact persons at those homes if possible, coordinate a time to visit the nursing home with your group, decide potential roles within your group.
Send formal letters of inquiry to our corporate headquarters: by email, fax or mail
