Special Letter to the Editor:

As I prepare to leave the Health Care Ministry of Princeton, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the Princeton Community who has supported our work.  Those of us who work in the non-profit sector think of ourselves as people who care for others, who serve others, and who support those in need.  We don’t think of ourselves first as recipients of caring.  Yet if it were not for so many in our community who cared for us, we at the Health Care Ministry would not be able to fulfill our mission of assisting the elderly to remain independent in their homes as long as that is safely possible.  If individuals did not give of their time as volunteers, if donors did not give us funding, if foundations did not provide grants, if businesses did not give support, or if other organizations did not partner with us, we would not be able to give.


The board of trustees of the HCM has named Beth Scholz as our new executive director.  Beth is very fortunate to work in a community that values service and caring.  I’m sure it will not take her long to see and to experience the generosity of the Princeton Community.


Thank you for all the support you have given to the Health Care Ministry throughout the 19 years that I have been associated with it.


Carol L. Olivieri

Executive Director

Our Mission:

To assist the elderly to be able to remain independent in their homes as long as that is safely possible.

Who We Are:

The Health Care Ministry of Princeton is a non-profit organization serving the elderly in the Princeton Community. We provide supportive services such as health- and medical-related transportation, food shopping, friendly visiting and caregiver support. Having provided services since 1984, we are very familiar with the needs of the elderly.

Whom We Serve:


We serve the elderly living in Princeton and the bordering communities of West Windsor, Plainsboro, Kingston, Rocky Hill, and the Village of Lawrence. One-half of our clients are in their eighties and one-quarter are over 90. We do not discriminate based on sex, race, or religion. We serve those who have no other source for these services or who cannot afford services. Clients must register before receiving services.

Sponsoring Organization:
