Las Campanas Community Funds awards
Villages of Santa Fe Grant for 2023
Las Campanas Community Funds is a positive force in the Santa Fe Community, and Villages is honored to be a recipient of this grant and recognized for our community involvement.
Las Campanas Community Funds raises funds from its members of Las Campanas. With its non-profit partner, the Santa Fe Community Foundation selects worthy organizations to support each year. The LCCF has distributed over $2 million to 40 community organizations in the last three years.
In addition to LCCF, Susan Greenhawt and Jan Faust have made specific gifts to support Villages.
Every year, one out of four Americans age 65+ falls. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among older adults.
Exercise and balance training are critical in preventing falls, a lifesaving strategy that can significantly impact the health and well-being of our older adults. A fall at 40 can be a non-issue, but a fall at 75 can be life-threatening.
Exercise is the only proven way to prevent falls. Villages of Santa Fe offers exercise and lifestyle programs for older adults, available 24/7 through online classes and a library of 600+ videos. Villages' strategies are effective. With a combination of paid and free classes, even adults on a fixed income can participate in building their physical resiliency and balance.
From January 2022 to September 2023, our 680 classes had 17,921 attendances by 1,401 participants.
The generous grant from LCCF supports Villages continuing drive to prevent falls.
The classes give me access to exercise and yoga, which I believe are essential to staying physically fit and flexible, emotionally balanced, and fall-free. The online classes are great because I would not be able to get to in-person classes and I can participate wherever I am. The instructors are friendly and organized and create exercises for all levels. I would not be exercising if these programs did not exist. Ann C.

Vaccinations Save Lives – Not Just Yours
Elais Ponton, MSN, BSN, RN
Chief Nursing Officer with Nurses with Heart
Vaccines do an incredible job of protecting you from serious diseases like COVID, flu, whooping cough and measles. Vaccine-preventable diseases have not gone away. Consider getting vaccinated to keep your grandchildren safe as well. The UK reported a 250% increase in cases of whooping cough this year. Pertussis, also called whooping cough, is a highly contagious respiratory disease that can cause serious illness, especially in babies and children.

Fall Prevention - Preventing falls can be lifesaving for older adults.
