What We Do
Like a family, we provide Care, Comfort and Support.
Fairway Cares was established to provide support to individuals and families with a critical illness, have sustained physical trauma, or are grieving the loss of a loved one. When you need to reach out, we are here for you. Currently, our programs include sending care packages and providing financial assistance.
Programs
Our core programs are care packages and financial assistance. Packages are specifically tailored for adults or children diagnosed with a critical illness, have sustained a physical trauma, or for those who have lost a loved one. We also send care packages to caregivers.
Who We Serve
Currently Fairway Cares is designed to meet the caring requests of Fairway employees. When someone in our family, our community, our office, or within our business circles is experiencing a loss or hardship, we are here to show our support.
Fairway Cares Impact
In the first half of 2018, Fairway Cares shipped 403 Care Packages and approved $215,550 in Financial Support nationwide. Special thanks to the employees of Fairway Independent Mortgage. Because of you, Fairway Cares continues to expand and make a difference. Without your requests and financial contributions, we wouldn't be able to reach so many people.
To care, we must do caring things. Fairway Cares.

Request
The process begins with a request from a Fairway employee. The employee will provide general contact information, share the story of the person in mind, and indicate whether a care package or financial assistance is being requested. The employee will also briefly describe the situation and provide relevant background information.

After a request is submitted, a Fairway Cares team member will reach out to the employee to acknowledge receipt of their request. An estimated time of when the care package will be shipped will be shared, or when they may expect a decision of a financial support request.
