About Us

Since 2003, Ascension St. Vincent’s Jeremiah’s Hope has trained hundreds of students and helped start them on their journey in healthcare. In 2019, these certification courses were transitioned to Jefferson State Community College, expanding Jeremiah’s Hope to four locations and enabling more flexible hours for students. Ascension St. Vincent’s Foundation – in partnership with generous donors – provides scholarships and support materials for these students.

“Jeremiah’s Hope changed my life and opened doors to a career I love. The teachers were amazing. My heart is in healthcare, and I’m currently pursuing my nursing degree. It’s a blessing to help impact lives, offer hope, and provide comfort to my patients.”

“God has a plan for everybody, but sometimes that plan needs a little facilitation. There are not enough healthcare personnel to fill all the jobs available locally. Giving to Jeremiah’s Hope is a privilege because it can help make a lasting impact on someone else’s life,” said supporter Cathy Adams. “This is the most joyful donation we make.”
