Furthering our mission to provide excellence in healthcare in Metro Vancouver
Delta, B.C., December 9, 2016: Alongside You is extremely grateful to be recognized by the Delta Chamber of Commerce and Kwantlen Polytechnic University with the Rising Star of the Year award. The Rising Star of the Year is an annual award given to a Delta-based business that has shown significant operational success and growth potential.
Everyone at Alongside You are excited about the award because it validates their business model, and their impact on the community. Co-Founders Andrew Neufeld and Meg Neufeld set out to run an ethical, professional service that filled gaps in the public system and met the needs of the community, and did not discriminate on diagnosis, ability, or financial status.
Alongside You is special because it is not just a business, it is a mission.
Their mission is to provide excellence in healthcare, meet the financial needs of their clients in a compassionate way, and provide a work environment that allows their staff to thrive. Their staff buy into the vision – and this is the reason it works. For Alongside You to provide the care for people that they do, their staff make personal sacrifices alongside them.
What further sets Alongside You apart, is that they have a fund set up called the Step Forward Fund that further subsidizes services for their clients who need some extra help. Alongside You runs events and all proceeds from these events go into the fund. They also have generous members of the community who see the work they are doing and get on board, donating time, and money to help the cause. Everyone at Alongside You is blown away by the community’s involvement in their work as they do not receive any tax benefits for their donations as they are not a non-profit. Everyone at Alongside You pours their heart and soul into the community, and the community has responded and helped them achieve their goal: to do the right thing, at the right time, for the right reasons because it is the right thing to do.
“Our hearts are to reach out to the community, find those that are not being reached by the public or other services and find a way to serve them and meet their needs. Professional, ethical, and effective health care takes not only a commitment on the part of the business owners, but also their staff as well as a community that embraces the services provided. This is our mission at Alongside You, and this has been our experience in our community. We are grateful to be a part of our local community and look forward to many more years of transformational leadership in health care in the Greater Vancouver area.” – Andrew Neufeld, Co-Founder of Alongside You
Jane Philpott, the current Minister of Health in Canada, once stated that innovation would be the key to problems in Canada’s healthcare system. Alongside You believes that by utilizing innovative programs like the Step Forward Fund and establishing the kind of community partnerships they have, health agencies across the Lower Mainland can better serve clients of all backgrounds and people with all kind of needs more effectively and efficiently, filling a gap that needs much attention.
