I learned the value of giving back to the community from my parents, Russ and Alice Redeker.  



They both worked full-time outside the home, but they always found time to give back to the community. Whether at the hospital, the church, or the soup kitchen, they gave of themselves. 

A major commitment of my own adult life, therefore, is giving back. On this page you may read about four groups with which I have worked closely. I hope I have made a difference as my parents did. I also hope to inspire others to do the same.



Live United

The United Way of Indian River County strives to improve the lives of those in the community by mobilizing its many resources from volunteering to donations to professional services. 

In addition to current support of the organization I was a member of the Board of Directors for six years and President of the Board from 2002 to 2003.  I believe there is no more effective way to care for the community than to do it together.


Over $1 million given for transformational projects in our community!

Background

Formed in late 2008, Impact 100 is a group of 300+ Indian River County women committed to transformational philanthropy. I am pleased to be president-elect and chair of the Membership Committee.

Each of us agrees to contribute a minimum of $1000.   Then, non-profit organizations focusing on family issues, health, the environment, the arts,  
and education are invited to submit grant proposals.  After presentations from the top six finalists, each woman votes - one woman, one vote. 

Because of the overwhelming support of the women of Indian River County, we have been able to award over $1 million in grants
.

Several years ago a group of us who were concerned that many of the mentally ill persons in Indian River County were slipping through the cracks formed the
Indian River  County Mental Health Collaborative   (MHC).  

I was honored to be the MHC's first chair, and continue to be on its Executive Committee.


Unlike other collaboratives, the MHC is primarily a group of funders of mental health services, with a vision to provide a seamless delivery of mental health services developed through collaboration.  The Mental Health Walk-In Center at the MHA was our first initiative.  Then, 
the we focused on recruitment and retention of mental health providers.  

P
owered by the vision of Eleonora McCabe, the MHC is participating in a partnership with the University of Florida in bringing a
satellite training program to Indian River County. Presently, the MHC is focussing on developing housing for the mentally ill. 



One of the most effective and caring agencies in Indian River County is the
Visiting Nurse Association and Hospice of the Treasure Coast.   I was proud to serve on its Board and to help realize its mission:

"VNA provides compassionate, innovative, effective solutions, setting the standard for patients and caregivers needing home-based, hospice and community health services."
