Linda Hart, Executive Director of Hancock County Senior Services, Inc. told Greenfield Kiwanians about the organization and the move to their new building. Senior Services is best known for their transportation service but they also offer homemaker, handyman, information and referral, outreach programs with senior health insurance, volunteer, telephone reassurance, respite, assisted at food care and legal services. The services are paid with funding provided by client donations, community support, United Way, Central Indiana Council on Aging, and local government.
The new building is located at 1870 Fields Boulevard and was made possible through a United Way capital grant funded by Lilly Endowment, Inc. That grant matched funds raised throughout the community. The Senior Services moved into the building in March, 2013. The new facility provides larger and better garage space, larger office space, public education spaces, and a library for caregivers.
Hart stressed that despite the conclusion of the capital fundraising program that Senior Services needs continued community support. Volunteers, Board Members, participation in food fundraisers at local restaurants, fundraising programs, and direct contributions are all needed.
