How Can I Help?
Thank you for your interest in supporting your community through Senior & Disability Services. Many of our programs could not succeed without your monetary support and volunteer hours.
The Family Caregiver Program
Your cash donation helps to support family members who are caring for a loved one by providing individual counseling, support groups, caregiver training, and respite care.
Our Area Coordinators work with older adults and family caregivers at no charge, regardless of income! Your cash donation helps provide services such as in home depression counseling, friendly visiting programs, and options counseling (long term care planning).
