St. Lucie County awarded largest FBIP grant in Florida history

St. Lucie County awarded largest FBIP grant in Florida history

 

St. Lucie County was recently awarded a $1.27 million grant from the Florida Boating Improvement Program to renovate and expand the North Causeway Island Park, representing the largest grant using state funds ever awarded by the agency.

With help from GrayRobinson Government Affairs and Lobbying Team, St. Lucie County’s Parks & Recreation staff was awarded the $1.27 million grant through the Florida Boating Improvement Program, which falls under the Boating and Waterways Section of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Renovations to the coastal park and boat ramp include replacing and expanding the existing boat ramp and parking area, creating a safer and ADA-accessible boat launch with additional trailer and ADA trailer parking spaces. Additional upgrades include newer restroom facilities, pavilions, picnic tables, a kayak/canoe launch area, lighting and upgraded stormwater/utilities. Parking will be expanded from 30 paved boat trailer and 10 car parking spaces to 62 paved boat trailer and 19 car parking spaces.

Designs and permitting have already been completed for this project. St. Lucie County plans to solicit bids from contractors soon and work is expected to begin in October. St. Lucie County Parks & Recreation hopes to keep the park open as much as possible during the renovation process; however, the site may need to temporarily close for various phases during the six-month project.

Managed by St. Lucie County’s Parks & Recreation Department, North Causeway Island Park is located at 500 North Causeway on North Hutchinson Island.

FPUA suspending disconnections, waiving late fees

FPUA suspending disconnections, waiving late fees

Fort Pierce Utilities Authority (FPUA) is suspending all service disconnections for non-payment, effective August 1st, and will waive any late fees assessed after August 1st, 2022, to provide relief to our customers with high utility bills. Reconnections have begun for customers who were disconnected between August 1st and August 4th, and any fees assessed will be credited to the account. These measures are additional steps that FPUA is taking to help customers manage bills amid increased fuel costs and a very hot summer.

FPUA encourages customers to do their best to stay current with their bills, as payments will be deferred, not waived. The grace period will apply to any customer – residential or business – who needs additional time to pay their bill.

FPUA has already redirected $50,000 to Project Care partner, Mustard Seed Ministries, from its energy conservation program fund, which is funded through the Florida Municipal Power Agency. Mustard Seed Ministries is coordinating this process and meeting with customers requesting financial assistance up to $150.00. Customers should call Mustard Seed at 772-465-6021 to schedule an appointment.

FPUA will continue to focus on ways to keep utility bills affordable for customers. We encourage everyone to visit our website at www.fpua.com for conservation tips.

FPUA offers budget billing and special payment arrangements to help during this natural gas crisis. Please contact FPUA’s Customer Service Department at 772-466-1600 ext. 3900 if help is needed.

Martin Artisan’s Guild, the HeART of the community

Martin Artisan’s Guild, the HeART of the community

 

Michaelann Bellerjeau, Stuart Police Chief Joseph Tumminelli and Mallo Bisset

When Michaelann Bellerjeau joined Martin Artisan’s Guild in 2021, she found a willing group of comrades ready to join her when she became chair of The Community and Educational Outreach Committee on the Guild’s board.

A meeting was scheduled with Lauren Mustelier, Director of Enrichment & Engagement at House of Hope (HOH) and the collaboration between the two nonprofits has flourished ever since.

The first project was supplying the Artist’s Corner, which occupies a corner in HOH’s Enrichment Center, with a cabinet and art supplies donated by Guild members.

Following that, member Eduardo Gomez held a two-week workshop for HOH’s Art4Kids program. Another member, Brenda Leigh, has designed the plans for upcoming mural projects for the nonprofit’s community gardens, which are estimated to begin being installed this fall.

The murals are a long-term initiative and will encompass HOH’s four gardens over a three-year period, allowing children who show serious talent to assist with the murals in hopes of encouraging their artistic ability and fostering their skills in project planning, neatness and staying committed until something is completed.

Mustelier says, “The Martin Artisans Guild has been an amazing partner by recognizing the importance of arts in the communities we serve, connecting skilled artists to our programming, and raising funds to elevate the quality and increase the diversity of art classes we are able to offer at the Golden Gate Center for Enrichment."

On July 16, Martin Artisans Guild president Mallo Bisset and board member Bellerjeau attended Stuart’s 6th Annual Back to School Bash. The yearly event, which is hosted by the Stuart Police Department and was held at Murray Middle School, is an opportunity for parents and community members to meet school leaders and teachers and get vouchers and school supplies.

Martin Artisan Guild members contributed enough money to purchase 30 backpacks, shirts and supplies.

Bisset and Bellerjeau were on hand to thank members of the Stuart Police Department for overseeing the event and to meet other community members.

So far, it’s been a great start to the “Art Hands on Deck” program, but it’s just the beginning. There are lots of plans in the works for more collaborations with Martin County nonprofits.

Bellerjeau is enthusiastic about the future. “When I stepped into this position, I found the Guild already had many talented artists sharing their ability and time as volunteers. When connecting our artists to projects, I’m very grateful, it’s such a joy to see the hearts of our members as they use their vast experiences, skill, creativity and funds to help people from other non-profits in Martin County.”

Helping People Succeed’s white shirt night event honors Veterans

Helping People Succeed’s white shirt night event honors Veterans

 

Maureen DeThorne, Kathy Lowery, Jenny Yingling and Amanda Yingling

Summer in Martin County brings one of our favorite events: White Shirt Night, the colorful and joyful fundraiser that benefits Helping People Succeed.

For over 10 years, Taste Casual Dining in Hobe Sound has welcomed some of the Treasure Coast’s premier artists to an evening in which they paint original expressions of their own unique art on white shirts, aprons, tote bags and caps.

This year, those award-winning artists – who donated the gift of their time and talent – were Susan Clifford, Laura DeBerard, Sharon Ferina, Barbara Lyons, Don MacIntosh, Dan Mackin, Pamela Patterson, Diane Raymond, Sue Ann Mosley Saleeby, Marian Vitale and Theresa Krueger Woleslagle.

Premier Event Sponsors were Celebrities Fore Kids, Inc. sponsored by Marlene K. Filer and a contribution honoring the memory of Sue Herskowitz; VIP Reception sponsors included Seacoast Bank, CarMax, Mary Kay Buckridge, EW Consultants and Karine Rich – honoring the memory of loved ones; Artist “Painting” sponsors were Marcia Benson – Realtor with Berkshire Hathaway, Donna E. DeMarchi, Esq. of The Eberst Law Firm, Jenkins Landscape Company and Kim Boosinger and The It’s for the Kids Sponsor was NisAir Air Conditioning.

Beautiful silent auction baskets were decorated by Vicki Davis, Martin County Supervisor of Elections, with one more breathtaking than the next. There was something for every taste.

During the evening, military veterans – who received a 50-percent discount off the entry fee – wore special medals given to them by Helping People Succeed in recognition of their service.

All proceeds from White Shirt Night benefit Helping People Succeed’s Camp Success, a free therapeutic summer camp led by master’s level therapists for children six-12 years of age. The camp is available to families who fall below the federal poverty line. Each year, kids embrace this eight-week camp as an incredible cultural and educational experience – one that they wouldn’t have otherwise.

Helping People Succeed is a local nonprofit that has been serving the Treasure Coast for over 58 years. Through its diversified, effective program services, the most vulnerable local children, families and adults have been able to improve their lives through education, counseling, training and employment.

VNA receives 5-star rating for patient satisfaction from CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services)

VNA receives 5-Star rating for patient satisfaction from CMS (Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services)

For Indian River and Brevard County

 

VNA reported a 5-Star rating in patient satisfaction for the July Care Compare update.  The star ratings come from the patient experience of care survey, also called the Home Health Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HHCAHPS) survey.   
 
The HHCAHPS survey tool seeks to evaluate patients’ experiences with home health agencies (HHAs) using data from clients (or the family or friends of clients) that have been cared for by the agency. The HHCAHPS Survey star ratings report clients’ experiences of care ranging from one star to five stars. Five stars is the highest rating, reflecting the best client experience.  
 
“We are living our WHY? Statement and the patients are feeling optimal quality of life,” says VNA CEO Lundy Fields. “It’s the love and compassion we bring into every patient encounter.”   
 

Denise Clark, director of Clinical Services in Brevard County, concurs. “Our clinicians provide excellent care and excellent service – at the end of the day, it is all about the patient. Our VNA clinicians dedicate themselves to the care and treatment of their patients and promote wellness and healing,” she says.

 

 

About the VNA 

The Visiting Nurse Association (VNA), a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, provides home healthcare services—including Medicare-reimbursed and private-duty nursing; home health aides; physical, speech, and occupational therapy; in-home companions; and personal transportation—throughout Indian River and Brevard Counties. The agency is also a licensed hospice provider in Indian River County, offering end-of-life care in patients’ homes, local hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living facilities, and the VNA Hospice House. The VNA also provides community wellness services such as flu vaccinations, no-cost blood pressure/blood sugar screenings, and speakers on health-related topics for local community groups.
