Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Food, Meals on Wheels

Mission: Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson & Ellis Counties serves the children of yesterday by helping needy homebound elderly and disabled people remain independent and healthy in their homes by providing home-delivered meals, daily personal contact, and support for individuals and their families.

Results: We help over 2,800 individuals each year remain independent and healthy. Over 500 volunteers help us deliver meals and so much more to their elderly and disabled neighbors in need.

Programs: Needs being addressed by Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson & Ellis Counties are hunger, malnutrition, isolation, access to community resources, and the inability to maintain home setting. MOWJEC provides home delivered meals delivered by volunteers to frail, isolated elderly and disabled persons who cannot adequately prepare meals for themselves. MOWJEC now serves over 600 persons a day in both Johnson and Ellis Counties. The agency continues to grow with the help of local and community support,in spite of significant financial losses from federal and state budget cuts.

There is not another organization that touches the lives of seniors everyday! Meals on Wheels is a daily and vital part of over 700 clients. So many seniors would be without human contact if it weren't for Meals on Wheels and the many volunteers. The director and staff are incredible and I am proud to be affiliated with them.

Meals on Wheels of Johnson and Ellis County is an organization that I have been involved with since 2005 as a volunteer then eventually as a Board Member. MOWJEC is a professional organization utilizing its resources in the most conservative compassionate manner possible. Our clients deserve the best in services and I believe our competent staff are some of the best in the Country.

I have been a board member for 2 years and it has been the most rewarding thing i have ever done. This organization has done more for the community than any other one I have ever been a part of. The leadership from top to bottom is committed and goes way beyond their duties every day to make sure this is the best organization it can be. I've been blessed to be a part. Steve Klein
