Mission Statement

The Portage County Health and Human Services Employees' Foundation Mission Statement is:

Honoring the service and dedication of its employees by providing meaningful programs and financial support to the residents of Portage County for the betterment of the community.


Each year the Foundation awards the scholarship to applicants who aspire to a career in the Health and Human Services or nursing fields, are a resident of Portage County, are attending a school or university in the county, and who demonstrate some financial need for continuing education.

The scholarships were established as memorials to Dr. Hangiandreou and Jane Shaurette. Dr. Hangiandreou was the Psychological Services Director at the Portage County Health and Human Services Department. Jane Shaurette was a public health nurse with the Department for over 20 years and served on the Employees' Foundation Board.
