TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Tuesday, Elder Care Services launched "Support Our Seniors", a collaborative, community based initiative that aims to raise funds for and educate local seniors about utility assistance and home weatherization.
Elder Care Services is an agent for the state's emergency home energy assistance for the elderly program.
The program can pay only one benefit per season and funds are usually exhausted by the first week of each month.
Through SOS, Elder Care Services is enlisting partners and donors to help safeguard the community's vulnerable, low-income senior population.
Since this innovative program launched in 2010, it has served nearly 10,000 residents across Tallahassee.
If you would like to get involved, contact Elder Care Services at (850) 921-5554.
