Partner testimonials:

“Saint Elizabeth’s received SHIP support to create dedicated lactation rooms for our employees. Funding was used to furnish and equip our lactation spaces so breastfeeding moms have the resources they need to continue breastfeeding when they return to work. We are grateful for the partnership of SHIP to advance our worksite wellness initiatives.”

- Jenny Schlagenhaft, Director Community Relations, Saint Elizabeth’s Medical Center

“SHIP will brighten the future of our young children. I am proud to be part of this program and cannot wait to teach my knowledge to the youngsters in my care.”    

- Stacey Kruger, child care provider
