Update on Rosa Lee Wapstra RN, MS

posted Jun 21, 2018, 6:05 PM by Douglas Chandler   [ updated Jun 21, 2018, 6:06 PM ]

Rosa Lee had retired once already.  However, Rosa Lee felt the call to continue her clinical work, and subsequently joined our staff.  My recollection is that Rosa Lee stated then that she wasn't sure how long she would be working with us, but was happy to be back in the office.  

Well, it has been more than 12 years since then, and we have been blessed with Rosa Lee's presence in our group all of this time.  We couldn't be more happy to have had her with us.  

Earlier this year, Rosa Lee took an extended Leave of Absence.  She will be returning from her Leave of Absence by the end of July.  Rosa Lee also announced her plan to enter retirement from practice, by the end of November, 2018.

If you have any questions, you may contact our main office, or Rosa Lee once she returns.

Obituary
We say goodbye to one of our original therapists, who opened our Everett First Presbyterian office.  Laverne Sugamele retired from our agency well before I arrived here in 2003.  Despite the time that has passed, I still continue to hear loving references to Laverne.  She has had a lasting impact on CCNPS as well as on the community she served.  Laverne died March 9, 2018, at the age of 85.  Laverne, thank you for blessing us with your years of service and presence.

Thank you to the Presbytery of the Northwest Coast

posted Jan 16, 2018, 1:24 PM by Douglas Chandler   [ updated Jan 16, 2018, 1:39 PM ]

The Presbytery has been a key partner for our agency since the beginning of CCNPS, with in-kind, spiritual, and financial support.  Over the course of the past few years, the Presbytery has undergone a number of substantial changes.  In the process, they have developed a new format for determining the use of mission support funds, which aligns more with the core mission statement of the Presbytery. 
We continue to receive their spiritual and in-kind support as an Endorsed Mission Partner, but will not be receiving dedicated Mission funds from the Presbytery.    We understand and respect the decision of the Presbytery, as well as appreciate the Endorsed Mission Partner status.  

We need your help!

We are looking for volunteers:
  • Board of Directors
  • Adjunct (temporary) Board Members for Fundraising
Come help where your time will make a real difference in the lives of those in the community!  

Donations:
Like many non-profit organizations, we are constantly in need of financial support.  It is more true now than ever.  The requirements of providing health care mean that our costs are going up, while contracted fee payments have remained largely flat.  Some key donors have changed the focus of their support, which has hit us hard.    Your donations are tax-deductible.
