Monthly Meetings

On the third Thursday of every month, HAPPEN holds a luncheon at a host facility somewhere in the Treasure Valley. It’s a great opportunity to network with other healthcare professionals and learn what’s going on in the Treasure Valley from our awesome guest speakers.  The food is pretty tasty, too!
Monthly meetings are back on! Check here for news about upcoming meetings.

HAPPEN’s annual Caregiver of the Year Awards Banquet honors the best of the Treasure Valley’s amazing caregivers. A field of incredible nomineees is invited to take part in an event dedicated to showing them the appreciation that they deserve. Stories are told, a great meal is shared, gift bags are given out, and bids are made in a silent auction for goods and services provided by our generous sponsors.  In the end, one Certified Nursing Assistant and one Personal Care Attendant are awarded the title of “Caregiver of the Year!”
