◊ Mobile Crafting

When: Varies

Locations:

Fernwood Senior Living Apartments

AV Senior Center

Lancaster Adult Day Care Center

This monthly crafting activities and educational sessions. We are looking to expand to additional locations.  Crafting allows social interaction and emotional support all in a safe and recognized environment.  It will also build confidence that will allow seniors to extend their comfort zone.  The event requires sponsors or funding from the facility and is free to participants.

◊ Seniors In Service

This monthly program was created to empower seniors through service to others. Participants propose a volunteer project and if eligible we provide support in any way possible. We assist in researching, setting up and scheduling volunteer opportunities. Though the work does not need to directly support our mission, the requesting participant MUST already be involved in our organization in some way.

This program addresses several important key factors:

  • productive, active participation in all aspects of economic, social and community life
  • self-reliance/self-determination
  • recognition as an actively contributing member of society
  • a positive outlook about self and future
  • good physical and mental health and ability to function
  • mutually supportive social relationships and contacts
  • financial security
  • safe and supportive environment/community to live and work

The first iteration of this program took place at Lancaster Fire Department Station 33 – 44947.

Since 2017
