Description of Agency WE CARE about older adults, their quality of life, independence and continuing potential WE BUILD programs, services and relationships to meet the needs of this growing population WE SERVE the community by empowering seniors, assisting families and enhancing lives  Meals on Wheels  Neighborhood Senior Centers  Professional Care Management  In-Home Services (Personal Care, Light Housekeeping, Respite)  Senior Health & Wellness  Transportation (TOPS) to health care services and appointments  Volunteer Program
  • 3. Proposed Use of Funds  Describe the program or services for which the grant would be used. To create a fourth senior center, located east of GA 400,serving residents of the Johns Creek/Alpharetta/Duluth area. Funds would be used to help:  staff a new center for daily activities and to serve as a distribution center for Meals on Wheels  purchase equipment and supplies for programs and activities that would be selected based on input from local seniors  Create an appealing, exciting café concept environment  Possibly run additional shuttle service so that programming can be expanded into the afternoon and possibly evenings, based on the interest and needs of the seniors (our county funding provides for one shuttle schedule to each center, which typically is 8:30am- 1:30pm weekdays).
  • 4. Agency Income  Briefly describe the major sources of funding (recurring grants, fundraisers, etc.) Senior Services receives its base funding through federal money provided through the Older Americans Act. Those funds are supplemented by Fulton County and available through our four-year contract to provide specific services to older residents of north Fulton County. We have two major grants-- from Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and the Fulton County Commissioners/ Human Services Dept. that fund TOPS---our transportation program through which we ensure seniors are able to get to doctor and healthcare appointments. Corporations and civic groups also provide annual grant funding so we can meet the growing need for assistance. Senior Services has one major fundraiser each spring. The Chef’s Extravaganza 2010 is scheduled for April 24 and is being hosted by our Presenting Sponsor, Kimberly-Clark Corporation. Local restaurants from the 6 cities of our service area will donate their time and talent to help make this international culinary experience a wonderful and successful evening. Clients make voluntary contributions, we have an annual campaign and rely heavily on volunteers to provide financial and in-kind support for our programs and services.
  • 5. Prior Charity Guild Funding  If agency has previously received Charity Guild funds, please give dates, amounts and information regarding how the funds were used.
  • 6. Agency Expenses Program Services $968,603 78.28 % of total expense Management and General $138,063 11.16 % of total expense Fundraising $130,660 10.56 % of total expense
  • 7. Agency Strengths  List key strengths Thanks to our 528+ volunteers, we are able to deliver over $1.56m in services, with just $1.11m in funds. As more business leaders become part of the sandwich generation, they are beginning to understand that support for seniors has a broad impact on the community and improves the quality of life for all residents. We enjoy a base of financial support from the county and federal government, for our core programs. But as an independent, non-profit organization, we have the flexibility to develop new programs, services and activities we find are not yet available to meet the unique needs of the residents of our local communities.
  • 8. Agency Challenges  List challenges currently being faced by the agency and challenges which are forecasted. The county budget deficit means cuts are expected and expansion of services with county funding is unlikely. So, to realize the goal of a senior center east of GA 400 so we can serve more seniors and their families in this portion of the county, we need to collaborate with the leaders in our community. The senior population is becoming increasingly diverse---in terms of age, ethnicity and degree of fitness. We are challenged to find staff and volunteers who can communicate with seniors who do not speak English and we must update our programs to appeal to a population whose ages span 4 decades. 85% of our seniors are low income and as they age and become increasingly frail, they need more services but are unable to financially contribute any more than they might be doing now. We are challenged to increase recognition of seniors as an at-risk population who need the support of the communities they helped build, especially during tough economic times and as more of us become part of the “sandwich generation."
