William's Wishes seeks to seed the development of new faith-based Health Ministries and Parish Nurse (also called Faith Community Nurse) programs, and to provide sustainability for those faith-based Health Ministries and Parish Nurse programs who are desirous of expanding the scope of their ministries. Through this mission, William's Wishes hopes to increase the number of individuals who receive the benefits of such programs and experience wholeness in mind, body, and spirit even when a cure may not be available.
William's Wishes understands the importance of health in mind, body, and spirit. We know that when one area is unhealthy, it affects the others and overall health is then at issue. We know that support during a crisis of health in mind, body, or spirit is critical and we have seen the benefit of the support of Parish Nurse programs and Health Ministries. It is our wish to promote such programs in faith-based, non-profit organizations.
William's Wishes was founded in 2014 as a legacy to a parishioner who was supported and nurtured within his congregation by a Health Ministry and their Parish Nurse. William spoke loudly about the compassionate, supportive care he received. It is our hope that, through the granting of funds via our Hands of Health Grants, William's Wishes will enable others to provide this same kind of care to others.
