Whom We Serve


We serve people age 60 and older who are aging without social support. By visiting and offering programs that promote independent living, we strive to meet the emotional and physical needs of our elderly friends. The services we provide depend on their level of need. Our Forever Friends are people we have determined to have the highest level of need because they require social support. It may be because they have no family in the area or their family requires and requests our assistance in reaching the social needs of their loved one. Our Forever Friends receive regular in-home visits, assistance with shopping and errands, rides to doctor appoinments, and are invited to al of our social activities and birthday celebrations. Our goal is to provide them with love and friendship, things that friends do together or for each other. Income is not considered in the selection process because it does not guarantee love or friendship.

For more information or to refer an elderly friend to the program, please call Julie Beck, Elder Services Coordinator at 482-6944 or email her at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
