Scholarships for upcoming nurses who have a heart to serve the elderly population in the community.

Our organization Rophe Healthcare Adult Day Service Center Program is a faith-based not-for-profit organization, with an active 501(c)3 status.  Rophe has been developed to provide a community-based care option for the Aging population.

We have compassion for the baby boomers as they are a part of aging population. Some of our parents, grandparents, and/or relatives are currently living with Dementia or Alzheimer’s without a person-centered care opportunity.

Our mission is to enhance their lifestyle by optimizing the care of the “whole” person, mentally and physically.

Your support and contributions will help Rophe Healthcare Day Care Service Center provide scholarships for community based services needed to prevent this population from living in isolation and becoming institutionalized.

The Lloyd “Jethro” Alfred Martin Sr. Humanitarian Nursing Scholarship

Lloyd Alfred Martin, St. was born in Chicago, Illinois on September 13, 1926. He was the youngest of five children and fathered 8 beautiful children. He was initially named Jethro, like Moses’ father-in-law of the holy scriptures .

Lloyd graduated in June 1944 from Franciscan Parker High School after several ‘school’ transitions. Soon after graduation, he enlisted in the United States Navy. He was a proud military serviceman that served as a Boatswain’s Mate (Shipboard) 2 on the USS Fletcher (DD-445). During his years of service, Lloyd served in two wars: World War II and the Korean War.

Lloyd received several medals and ribbons: The Victory Medal, on June 30, 1948, The American Area Campaign Medal, the Asiatic – Pacific Area Campaign Medal, the Philippines Liberation Medal, the Korean Service Medal, the United Nations Medal, and the China Service Medal. He was honorably discharged on September 1, 1952. After serving in the military, Mr. Martin became a Licensed Practical Nurse and served in the nursing home level of care.

At the age of 94, Mr. Martin Sr. made his transition from this life.
