Since 1963, we have empowered seniors and those with disabilities to live safely and independently in their own homes by providing services that promote dignity and joy. Intermittent flooding has accelerated our building’s aging process and is hampering our ability to meet the needs of those who need us most. And the need is growing — our community demographics are maturing and 39% of those we serve have incomes below the poverty line. Your generosity will modernize and enhance our building in ways that mitigate flood risk and restore the level of service to which we’re dedicated to providing now — and as we expand in the future. Due to support from over 60 generous donors, we are already halfway to our $3,000,000 goal.
Built in 1973, our Jasper Street location sits in a flood zone and needs mitigation so our vital services are not interrupted. The building's HVAC and other mechanical components need to be replaced for efficiency. Our kitchen is in need of updated equipment with more capacity so we can better meet the growing need of those we serve. Volunteers are a vital part of our organization and right now those serving Meals on Wheels clients are exposed to the elements in an over crowded loading area. A covered and expanded loading area will allow our vital volunteers to work more quickly and efficiently, allowing us time to serve more of those in need. Our Home Repair team members and volunteers need a much deserved enclosed, heated space. They are currently outdoors prepping for ramp builds and other home modifications come rain or shine...or snow! Lastly, due to the age of the building, the interior is ready to be renovated for a more inspiring, motivating space for our team to accommodate those we serve. Thank you for supporting the growing need of the aging and adults with disabilities community.
