Review for Senior Citizens Council Of Clackamas County Inc, Oregon City, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

On a budget of $328,000 with 5.2 full time equivalent employees, Seniior Citizen Council of Clackamas County in 2011-2012 provided services to 564 clients, over half being victims of abuse, or neglect or self-neglecting, and victims of exploitation. We provide financial support (acting as representative payee and paying bills), connection to services so that our clients can remain in their homes and, when finally necessary, serving as Clackamas County's principal guardian and conservator. If only government could be as efficient!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

raise more funding to increase local services, and raise additional funds to replicate the program in other Oregon counties.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?

Review for Senior Citizens Council Of Clackamas County Inc, Oregon City, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

About 6 years ago I was recruited to join the board of Senior Citizens Council of Clackamas County, and for the last few years I have been president. "Senior Council" as we call it, serves more than 1,000 clients with 4.5 FTE's on a budget comprised of fees and private contributions, making referrals to sources of senior assistance, providing our Guardianship Diversion services to 250 clients to slow down the institutionalization process, and finally to serve as Clackamas County's de facto public guardian and conservator in cases where protection is required. Rarely, if ever, has so much been done for so little money and, wit our graying, the need grows.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As a board member I see results. As an attorney, I have engaged Senior Council to provide assistance to clients in need

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would enlarge our base of contributors so that we can serve more and possibly replicate our services elsewhere
