the caregiver program provided support to individuals caring for older adults through the some time away program which provided a once a week program for adults with memory loss giving caregivers time off, and a caregiver support group.
the emergency food shelf distributed food to families in need. In addition to this, disabled children and adults, plus seniors received food assistance through our monthly supplemental food programs.
