Your donation (of any amount) can help provide services and supports to seniors in need across 8 counties in Southeast Ohio.

The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program
provides income-eligible senior citizens with special coupons worth $50 to enjoy locally grown fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and honey.    

While the Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program is funded by USDA and the Ohio Department of Aging,  their funding is LIMITED. Many income-eligible seniors are placed on waiting lists.  Program coupons may be exchanged for eligible foods from  authorized farmers. Only fresh, locally grown fruits, herbs, vegetables and honey are  eligible to be purchased with the coupons.

$50 will sponsor 1 of the 500+ seniors in Southeast Ohio on the current waiting list for Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition  Program coupons.

Project Lifesaver
program technology, in the hands of certified law enforcement partners, helps find people with a cognitive disorder such as Alzheimer’s disease or Autism when they wander from a caregiver.

Clients are outfitted with a transmitter about the size of a watch  — worn on the wrist or     ankle. Should the client wander, the caregiver notifies 911 and the local Sheriff’s Office  begins a search immediately using Project Lifesaver equipment. Without the technology, searches can last hours or days.

Through community donations, the program is offered free to seniors. $350 will sponsor 1 enrollee on the Project Lifesaver Program.
