The residents of Freedom Village, a Continuing Care Retirement Community in Hemet, CA believe in the education and growth of the employees they see working hard every day at Freedom Village. A very special group of residents put money behind that statement and formed Freedom Village Scholarship Board in 1995.
For the last 20 years, residents have generously funded Freedom Village Scholarship program primarily through fundraisers and resident wills, trusts and estates. Once a year in June, Freedom Village Scholarship Board awards scholarships to deserving employees. Full-time students attending a four year university or college receive a $3,000 scholarship, while full-time students attending a two year college receive $1,500. Scholarships for grants vary in the amount given. All eligible recipients must be employees of Freedom Village Retirement or HealthCare Center.
This year Freedom Village Scholarship Fund awarded seven scholarships to seven very deserving employees.
