3/18 Speaker: Heath Stukenholtz, Vice President – Tabitha Foundation

Heath gave us a great overview of what Tabitha is all about.  We don’t have enough space to cover the whole story here, but some of the highlights include:

Tabitha is a non-profit health care organization with a goal of breaking even financially each year.  They have a $52mm operating budget and serve in 28 southeast Nebraska counties.  Tabitha has 1,100+ employees.  Tabitha Meals on Wheels has over $300,000 deficit each year from the more than 70% of recipients who aren’t able to afford their meal.  A major goal of Tabitha is to keep people in their homes longer.
