BAYADA Home Health Care Founder and President Mark Baiada and his wife Ann received the Richard J. Hughes Humanitarian Award from Catholic Charities, Diocese of Trenton for their dedication to serving the community’s poor and vulnerable. They received the honor on the organization’s centennial anniversary at an annual awards dinner, which was held on Saturday, September 21st at the Hyatt Regency Princeton.

The Baiadas have been enthusiastic supporters of Catholic Charities, Diocese of Trenton for more than a decade. One of the catalysts for their support was a relative of Mark Baiada’s who was challenged with mental health issues and helped by Catholic Charities’ counselors.

According to Baiada, “Catholic Charities rescued my brother and enabled him to stabilize and lead a better life. That was a defining moment for me. By supporting Catholic Charities, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to see many others like him receive the help they need to get a fresh start on life.”

As the founder and president of BAYADA, Baiada’s vision is to help millions of people worldwide to experience a better quality of life in the comfort of their own homes. Like Catholic Charities, Mark Baiada would like to create a lasting legacy, led by like-minded individuals who are passionate about helping others.

Ann Baiada shares her husband’s enthusiasm for Catholic Charities and credits her parents for instilling in her a strong sense of community and service to others. “If there was ever a need in our community or church, my siblings and I were there—alongside our mother—to help. By their example, my parents taught me that we need to give and be of service in order to make a difference.”

Especially close to her heart is Catholic Charities’ Providence House. “It’s a good feeling to know that so many women and children who escaped a violent environment have someplace where they can feel safe at night,” she said. “Providence House staff truly transforms lives and provide very special and meaningful opportunities for those who would otherwise slip through society’s cracks.”
