EmblemHealth Now a Sponsor of ChaplainsOnHand.org  & ChatWithAChaplain   

More than 60,000 people dealing with the spiritual distress resulting from serious illness and grief have turned to the unique online service ChaplainsOnHand.org to find comfort regardless of religion or beliefs since its introduction by the nonprofit HealthCare Chaplaincy Network earlier this year. In addition, more than a thousand people have requested to chat with a chaplain by email or phone or to be remembered in prayer.

HealthCare Chaplaincy Network created ChaplainsOnHand.org and ChatWithAChaplain to provide professional-quality spiritual care for the countless people who feel they have nowhere else to turn to find relief from the big issues that weigh on their minds when coping with a new or ongoing health crisis or bereavement.

EmblemHealth is now a sponsor of these services, as part of its Care for the Family Caregiver program. As a health and wellness company, EmblemHealth has championed family caregivers for over a decade, providing tools and resources to help them navigate the family caregiving journey.  

"We are thrilled that EmblemHealth has joined with us to sponsor these much needed and first of their kind services to help those in spiritual distress: whoever they are, whatever they believe," says HealthCare Chaplaincy Network president and CEO Rev. Eric J. Hall. "The ChaplainsOnHand website has considerable information and resources written by highly experienced, professional chaplains. People who have chatted with chaplains say that the conversations have made quite a positive difference for them."
