Our story begins in 1994 when Veronica McMillian, the Director of the Micro-Nonprofit Network Inc. was the primary caregiver and care coordinator for her aging mother. Ms. McMillian's mother needed multiple services to remain at home with her family. At the time, there was little to no support services in place to help Veronica navigate the process of care coordination. On her own, Ms. McMillian secured the following: medical equipment providers; mental health services; certified nursing care; diabetic and nutritional services; and maintained the support of her mother's church for spiritual support. These services were needed in order for her mother to remain in the home, and through Veronica's perseverance, her mother lived a fulfilling life with her family at home.
Francine Humphrey, Coordination Manager of the Micro-Nonprofit Network Inc., shared a similar story while caring for her mother-in-law. Additionally, in 2017, Francine was hired to provide coordination services for a quadriplegic client. The client required very unique services. Francine coordinated services which included specialized transportation because the client wanted to work, certified nursing care, meal planning, personal care, house cleaning, and arranging care for bathroom breaks at the client's place of employment. And through Francine's efforts, her client found fulfillment and comfort at work.
