For generations, a community has served a vital role in terms of acting as a support system and offering a way to bring people together. With our society moving at a faster pace with busy schedules and the frequency people change jobs, homes and locations, it makes it harder to make a connection and feel part of something bigger than yourself.
As a locally owned and operated business, The Freedom Center of Rochester, NY is committed to the community we serve. Each year, our employees participate in a variety of community activities and support a number of worthwhile organizations. A strong community benefits the individual, the community as well as the greater society. People of all ages who feel a sense of belonging tend to lead happier and healthier lives, and strong communities create a more stable and supportive society. This is directly related to our Interim HealthCare mission – We Improve People’s Lives.

Holiday Give Back: Red Kettle Ringers
Participants from Interim HealthCare’s Freedom Center in Rochester, NY were volunteer bell ringers at the Salvation Army Red Kettle location outside Macy’s at the Greece Ridge Mall. The Center encourages community give back and ringing at the Red Kettle was a perfect outreach during this holiday season.
“The customers recognized that it was really cold outside and were very generous with their Red Kettle donations,” Tonette Ferrante said. “Alex was so moved by the day that he actually wants to work with the people receiving help from support like the Salvation Army fundraiser, so we’re going to work in a soup kitchen soon.”
