Mission: Meals on wheels chicago is committed to the belief that all individuals have the right to live independently with dignity in their own homes. Through monetary grants to our two city of chicago agencies, it is our hope to reduce the number of homebound seniors and individuals with disabilities in need. While the programs we help to support are vastly different, they share the same common goal: to give individuals the ability to remain in their own home.
Programs: Home delivered meal recipients receive two complete meals. Meals are carefully monitored for food safety and nutrition standards. Diabetic, low sodium, and other special meal plans are available for clients with special nutritional needs.
home modification program provides financial assistance to qualifying individuals with disabilities for structural alterations that increase the accessibility of homes or apartments.
