OSSINING, NY (January 2015) – Dominican Sisters Family Health Service, Inc., (DSFHS) a leading visiting nurse service providing home healthcare in Westchester, Putnam, Orange, the Bronx, Manhattan, Nassau and Suffolk counties, has been awarded a $7,500 grant from KeyBank Foundation to support its Charitable Programs in the Bronx. It was announced today by representatives from KeyBank in Tarrytown.

The Infant& Toddler program is a community-based charitable program which provides early childhood education, assessment and intervention for children from birth to 3 years of age, along with family support services for parents. The program is center-based at DSFHS’s location at East 148th St. (Brook Avenue) in the Bronx and includes home-based services as well.

“This very generous gift from KeyBank is going to make a real and lasting difference for families and children in underserved communities who often fall through the cracks,” said Mary Zagajeski, President/CEO of Dominican Sisters Family Health Service. “KeyBank’s donation is a wonderful example of how the private sector can help enhance quality of life in our communities and underscores KeyBank’s commitment to important charitable causes.”

“At KeyBank, we believe the economic self-sufficiency of residents in our local communities is critical. The Infant Toddler Parent Program helps facilitate this by providing at-risk families with the training and support they need to make better financial and parenting decisions,” said Ruth Mahoney, president, Hudson Valley/Metro NY Market, KeyBank. “In supporting Dominican Sisters Family Health Service, we’re supporting our region’s children and demonstrating our belief that the future is brighter when more people have the opportunity to succeed in it.”
