October 26, 2017 City Council Regular Meeting
Appearance by St. Joseph's/Candler Health Systems President/CEO Paul P. Hinchey to Present a $15,000 Donation to the Savannah Affordable Housing Fund

St. Joseph's/Candler Health Systems (SJCHS) President/CEO Paul P. Hinchey, along with fellow SJCHS leadership executives, are presenting a check for $15,000 to the Mayor and Aldermen for deposit into the Savannah Affordable Housing Fund (SAHF) in continued support of the St. Joseph's/Candler Home Ownership Program.  They are accompanied by Vera Williams, a pharmacy technician and SJCHS employee, who purchased her first home through the program.  SAHF Advisory Committee and Community Housing Services Agency, Inc. (CHSA) officials are also participating in the presentation.

During the previous three years, SJCHS has invested $45,000 in the SAHF for down payment assistance to its modest wage employees interested in purchasing homes in Savannah.  The Hospital's investment has helped 13 SJCHS employees purchase their first homes since the program started. SAHF and SJCHS officials hope this partnership will lead to similar partnerships with other Savannah area employers.  The SAHF is a local fund that leverages significant private investment to help address local workforce and affordable housing needs and opportunities. A motion to formally accept this donation appears in the resolution section of the agenda.
