No senior should have to decide between food or prescriptions!

Description of project

Get Me To Monday is an emergency food program for seniors citizens that may find them at the end of the month without enough money for food or prescriptions. Being on a tight, fixed income can be extremely difficult, especially for our vulnerable population. When there is a call for need, Elder Care Services is there with a "bag of hope" that not only provides 2-3 days of easy to open and prepare non- perishable food, but also with paper goods and resources and information. Not only that, a senior can have the option of a care coordination home visit so that assistance can be provided such as money management, an in-home helper and transportation assistance to places such as local food pantries and the grocery store. The goal is not only treat the symptom, but to hopefully create solutions for long term success.
