Dámaris Medina-Hernández, long-time Manager of Homecare Training and Quality Assurance, has been with JFS since July 2000. Her passion for the program and her compassion for the clients it serves convinced her sister, Jessica Hernández, Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), to join JFS’ Homecare program as a Personal Care Homemaker in January of 2022.
The sisters are from Puerto Rico and are bi-lingual. Not to be left out, Jessica Ortiz-Pomales, CNA, daughter of Jessica and niece of Damaris, picked up the torch later in January of 2022, working as a bi-lingual Personal Care Homemaker to JFS’ most vulnerable older adult clients.
In 2021, Wendy Polanco Morales joined her mother, Lillian Morales, and aunt, Elidia Morales on the staff of JFS’ Homecare Team. Lillian began her career at JFS in early 2016, followed by her sister, Elidia, who joined the Team in early 2018. The two multilingual sisters are natives of Guatemala, Elidia works as a Homemaker and Lillian works as a Personal Care Homemaker serving frail older adults.
Following in their footsteps, Wendy, a Certified Nursing Assistant, joined JFS as a multilingual Personal Care Homemaker. The trio is described as “professional go-getters passionate about advocating for Homecare workers and their clients.”
We are grateful to have the Hernández and Morales families as a part of the JFS family.
