The Jean Griswold Foundation
Supporting Those Who Support Others
Caregivers are the backbone of a home care company. Without the dedication,
compassion, and hard work of a caregiver, our purpose of giving people
the help they need to live in the place they love would be impossible
to achieve. We recognize the critical role of caregivers, and that is
why the Jean Griswold Foundation focuses solely on caregivers. Our mission
is to support them with educational opportunities and scholarships.
We are excited to announce that we have awarded $12,000 in scholarships to six overachieving caregivers from across the country! Congratulations to:
Alise Perkins, a caregiver with Griswold Homecare of North Houston Area looking to complete her final prerequisite courses so she can apply to a graduate school program for occupational therapy
Jessica Perez, a caregiver with Griswold Home Care of San Antonio looking to earn her CNA
Stephanie Caudle, a caregiver with Griswold Homecare of Wnston Salem looking to complete her LPN and license in social work
Analisa Martinez, a caregiver with Griswold Home Care SE Houston who recently decided to change her career path to polysomnography at her local Community College
LaKecia Robinson, a registered caregiver with Griswold Home Care of Columbia looking to start a CNA program and become a registered nurse
Joanna George, a caregiver and student at the Gerontology College of Public Affairs and Community Service, who has been accepted into medical school.
Each caregiver will receive $2,000 to continue their education in a care-related field. These caregivers have displayed enduring dedication, arduous work ethic, and abiding motivation, and we are thrilled to provide the financial support they deserve.

"With humility and appreciation, we recognize the critical role of our caregivers. The pandemic was an astonishing reminder of just how important they are to society. The Jean Griswold Foundation is proud to focus its efforts towards supporting caregivers everywhere, and we look forward to awarding scholarships and grants throughout the coming years.”
