We do not discriminate based on national origin, race, religion, sex, weight, height, hair color, physical or mental limitations, or income.
SERVICES: Meals: Meals are served weekdays from 11:45 am for 1 hour or until food runs out, whichever happens first (Holidays excluded). The suggested contribution for these meals is $4.50. The center is required to serve meals 260 days a year, so periodically there will be a Saturday breakfast scheduled. ANYONE who have reached their 60th birthday (and their spouses) are eligible for these meals. See our current menu by clicking this link.
Home Delivered Meals: Home delivered meals are available to those who have reached their 60th birthday and demonstrate a need for this service. The suggested contribution for this service is $4.50 per meal. Contact the center office (883-2678) for more details.
Van Service: The center has a van that is wheel chair accessible. The van is used locally to transport clients to the center or to appointments. Currently, we have only one driver who must be back to the center by 2 PM, so requests for van service must conform to that time constraint. In order to make use of these services, it is necessary to call the center (883-2678) to make an appointment at least by the day prior to the scheduled trip.
