What is HAPPEN?
HAPPEN stands for Healthcare Associates Providing Positive Education and
Networking, and since it was formed in 1997 that’s exactly what we’ve
done! We’re a non-profit 501(C)3 organization of healthcare providers
with members from over 150 companies and organizations throughout the
Treasure Valley. We were founded on the idea that our community needed a
way to promote healthcare education and provide networking
opportunities for professionals that support the senior population in
the Treasure Valley.
Our membership includes representatives from major hospitals, assisted living communities, skilled nursing homes, home health and home care agencies, referral services, durable medical equipment companies and more.
HAPPEN is entirely volunteer-driven, and our efforts are supported through generous donations from our membership and the community in conjunction with nominal annual dues. These dues entitle our members to join us for a networking luncheon hosted by a different facility each month. Every luncheon also features a presentation by a guest speaker.
Another of our major volunteer efforts is
the annual “I Make it HAPPEN!” Caregiver of the Year Awards Banquet.
Our members work tirelessly throughout the year to solicit donations to
sponsor the award, coordinate the banquet, and select the recipients
from amongst the many amazing caregivers throughout the Treasure Valley.
