Local Non-profit and Hayden Homes Join Forces to Tackle Stroke Education 

Hayden Homes Donates $110,000 over a 4 year period in partnership with Stroke Awareness Oregon to bring light to the stroke community across Central Oregon. 


Bend, Oregon – Stroke Awareness Oregon is celebrating an incredible milestone with the continued monetary support of Hayden Homes in their latest donation. With a commitment of $100,000 over a four year period, and an additional $10,000 donated in honor of the organization’s dedication to new education and recovery programs. 


Stroke Awareness Oregon is honored to continue partnering with Hayden Homes and continue the conversation around stroke education, prevention, and recovery. With the help and heart of an organization such as Hayden Homes, the programs provided by Stroke Awareness Oregon can reach far beyond the local community, and extend across

the state. 


“This is an incredible opportunity for the organization and a true testament to how important this work is. 1 in 4 people will have a stroke in their lifetime. It is crucial that we set up the preventative measures, early education, and the recovery support for those that will feel the impact of stroke.” – Jim Patterson, SAO President 


Hayden Homes has continually supported Stroke Awareness Oregon, with a Match Challenge taking place in May of 2023 for Stroke Awareness Month. Hayden Homes has a personal relationship with the disease and in tribute to veteran employees impacted by stroke, has dedicated tremendous support and monetary involvement in the stroke community.
