Current Priority Projects

The InReach Clinic

Since 1993, Albany InReach Services has been providing health care to the medically underserved residents of Albany, Millersburg and Tangent. The needs have grown, and InReach has expanded its services and partnerships to meet those needs.

The 20 years of InReach success, however, would not be possible without the generosity of the community.

Community members have contributed to the Albany General Hospital Foundation to benefit InReach since the beginning. The foundation’s major event for InReach is the annual Winter Gala, which will be held on Jan. 30, 2014 at the Albany Wheelhouse.

This year, the event will celebrate the ‘Greatest Generation’ and the critical sacrifices that generation made for our nation. Join this celebration and consider what you might contribute for the underserved in our communities.

More than a benefit dinner, the Gala is an opportunity to socialize and network with friends and acquaintances. The Hilltop Big Band will provide music from the Big Band era for dancing, and Sybaris Chef Matt Bennett will cater the meal. Hosts for the 2014 Gala are Linda and Richard Havard, MD; Denise and Jeff Croy, MD; and Allison and Tim Reid, DVM.

For more information about the Winter Gala, call Stephanie Hagerty at the Albany General Hospital Foundation at 541-812-4704.

Callie’s Fund: helping people and their pets  

Established in loving memory of one of the first therapy dogs used in the delivery of Samaritan Evergreen Hospice services, Callie’s Fund specifically addresses pet issues in relationship to hospice patients and their families. It is used to help hospice patients’ pets and pets that are in the Samaritan Evergreen Hospice Pet Therapy Program.  

Callie was a frequent visitor to hospice patients and their families in their places of residence. Callie died in January 2011 of cancer and many of her favorite families encouraged the establishment of a fund in her memory.
