If we are able to raise $1,000 for our Veterans Coffee Talk (VCT) then we will be able to get a Veteran Grief Counselor to help battle PTS, PTSD & Veteran Suicide in Lincoln County, Missouri! Help us give these Service Men & Women the help & resources they need and DESERVE.
Every Thursday we host 200 (+) Veterans for coffee and camaraderie. For many of these men & women, our weekly meetings are healing for both mind & soul. Getting to sit together and talk with others who understand and can emphasize for what our American Veterans have endured for our great Nation.
The Lincoln County Council on Aging has served all 640+ sq. miles of Lincoln County, Missouri since 1978. We offer home-delivered meals as well as congregate meals. And our locations offer many other FREE programs to the public. Everything from gardening and Medicare counseling, to Bingo and exercise! We are in desperate need of a pre-owned vehicle for our meal delivery fleet.
Our DME (Durable Medical Equipment) library offers free assistance to seniors who need a piece of medical equipment and can't get that item through their insurance or due to financial restraints. Depending on the particular loan closet, the equipment may be loaned out for a set period of time, for as long as the person needs it, or in some cases it may be given away. When the equipment is returned, it must go through a sanitation process and safety check assessment. This is required in order to be made available for the next person. The medical equipment available varies from one loan closet to another.
We also accept donations of medical equipment from individuals and facilities no longer using those items. Those items are sanitized in order to prepare them for distribution for those in need. We are proudly serving the San Fernando Valley area. Any assistance that is able to be donated, will aide our goal in helping others in need and improving their quality of life.
