Employee of Preferred Home Health Care Selected as Hispanic Leader Making a Difference in New Jersey

Posted on September 6, 2018 By

Kimberly Lamberty-Torres, Linwood, client services coordinator for Preferred Home Health Care & Nursing Services (PHHC), Galloway office, was selected as one of the “Hispanic Leaders Who Are Making a Difference in New Jersey.” The South Jersey Journal will recognize Lamberty-Torres, who has worked for Preferred for six years, with a profile about her contributions.

Lamberty-Torres volunteered in the campaign “Puerto Rico Strong.” After she arrived in Puerto Rico on October 6, 2017, the campaign raised more than $40,000 and was instrumental in shipping to Puerto Rico three containers of supplies, food, tarps, water, and many other items.

After the trip to Puerto Rico, Lamberty-Torres co-founded Latinos En Marcha, an active advocacy group that participated in the Unity March for Puerto Rico on November 19, 2017.

Lamberty-Torres said, “We had the largest contingent representing the state of Pennsylvania.”

Lamberty-Torres, Latinos En Marcha, and the Free Library of Philadelphia held a FEMA clinic for several weeks and assisted more than 100 evacuee families with FEMA applications and appeals. The group participated in a Woman’s March this past January to continue to highlight the plight of Puerto Rico and its people.

On a more local level, Lamberty-Torres and Damaris Esquea, Pleasantville, a certified home health aide for PHHC, recently made sure that Rosaline Glover, Pleasantville, a client of theirs, received a replacement motorized wheelchair through the One Wish program of PHHC when they found out that Glover couldn’t leave her home because her wheelchair was broken.
