Winter 2014 - Catholic Health Services
WINTER 2014
Angel Alvarez takes the Centro Mater
Mission to Washington
Catholic Health Services proudly participated in a congressional briefing
on Capitol Hill to address How to Improve Healthy Eating and Physical
Activity in Early Care and Education. Mr. Angel
Alvarez, program director for Centro Mater
Child Care Services, advocated in promoting
wellness and nutrition in children. Some of the
programs in which Centro Mater is participating
include: gardening, health fairs, nutrition
education for families and staff, physical
education and healthy menu changes.
This briefing was an opportunity to demonstrate
that creating healthier environments in the early
childhood education setting can be challenging,
but possible, if there is support from the
provider and parent.
With the assistance and commitment of Ana Cleves, MPH, RD, LDN,
dietitian for Centro Mater Child Care Services, the center received a grant
from the National Early Care and
Education Learning Collaborative. Ana led
an initiative in Centro Mater to make healthy
menu changes and certify the center as a
breastfeeding friendly facility. This is being
accomplished through the “Taking Steps
to Healthy Success” grant with the help of
Early Learning Coalition. “I felt honored to
discuss all the hard work that the Centro
Mater team has accomplished over the past
few years. Through our teachers, food service
team and dietitian we are helping families lead
healthier lives” states Mr. Alvarez.

A SPECIAL THANKS
STAR & CROSS CLUB
At this time of year we give thanks for our many blessings. Special thanks goes out to the members of the Catholic Health
Services Star & Cross Club. CHS employees join this club by contributing to a fund designated for helping other
CHS employees. Star & Cross Club members’ contributions are turned into grants for CHS employees who are faced with
unavoidable emergency situations and have no other place to turn. Qualifying emergency needs might be for housing,
utilities, food, clothing, catastrophic automobile repairs, illness, injury, homelessness, or a death in the family.
Between January 1, 2014 and October 30, 2014 Star and Cross has provided $25,495.00 to employees who
have applied to the Star & Cross Club for a grant.
For their role in living the CHS Mission and helping colleagues in times of hardship and need,
a SPECIAL THANK YOU goes out to all the members of the Star & Cross Club.

New in the neighborhood,
TJ MAxx partners with Villa
“Caring for others is an important part of the culture for the TJX Foundation. The primary mission of The TJX
Foundation is to support programs that provide basic-need services to disadvantaged children, women and
families in communities where we do business”. When the new T.J. Maxx store opened in North Miami
Beach, they wanted to give a charitable
donation to a supporting 501(c)(3) charity
that conforms to their giving guidelines.
Villa Maria Nursing Center was a perfect fit!
The General Manager of the new store had a
relative who was living at Villa Maria and she
felt that her relative received excellent care
and was very impressed with their level of
service. After filling out an application,
Villa Maria was chosen and awarded a
check for $5000.
Jim Reiss, Executive Director, Villa Maria Nursing Center was a participant at the ribbon cutting for the
Grand Opening of the T.J. Maxx store on 125th and Biscayne, North Miami. “We are fortunate and blessed
that the TJX Foundation chose us and we will use the check to enhance our recreational program for our patients”.

CHS South Campus
celebrates Mission Week
in a special way
There is hardly a more meaningful way of celebrating the CHS Mission
than to volunteer to help those in need. The management staff at St.
Anne’s Nursing Center and Residence did just that. For a full week directors and managers spent over 7 hours each day prepping, cooking,
serving food and cleaning up at the local Homestead Soup Kitchen.
"We are so grateful for the opportunity to provide a comforting and
nutritious meal to the needy in our neighborhood. It is our pleasure to serve,"
says Rosemarie Bailey, executive director of CHS South Campus.
The mission of the Homestead Soup Kitchen is to serve those members of their community in
need of a hot meal, regardless of circumstances. By having a “no questions asked” policy, the
Soup Kitchen provided more than 700 meals weekly to individuals and families of the Greater
Homestead/Florida City area and beyond. “One reason the Soup Kitchen is successful in feeding
so many with so little, is because of the many dedicated volunteers. These volunteers help cook,
prepare and serve the food and include local churches, civic organizations, as well as individuals,”
shared a spokesperson at the soup kitchen.
