Copperleaf employees

(Willmar MN-) Residents and staff members of Vista Prairie at Copperleaf will benefit from a $10,000 grant from the LeadingAge Minnesota Foundation. The funds will be used for continuing education, stress and emotional support, urgent expense needs, and other services for Copperleaf employees.

“While our staff is dedicated to our mission, they are not immune from fatigue or burnout during our pandemic response,” said Jennie Marcus, Copperleaf’s executive director. “These funds will help us support them and say thanks in more tangible ways. We are so grateful for this much needed support from the LeadingAge Minnesota Foundation.”

Part of the grant will be used for tuition support for staff to get additional training and certifications at area community colleges. That training will be a direct benefit for Copperleaf residents.
