Council on Aging (COA) annually serves more than 26,000 vulnerable older adults and people with disabilities in our region. During the COVID-19 pandemic COA is working to ensure the health and safety of their clients, as well as meet the needs of individuals who have never before needed assistance.
With your generous support to the Greater Cincinnati’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, COA has delivered more than 7,500 emergency food boxes containing a 14-day supply – more than 105,000 shelf-stable meals – to home-delivered meals recipients.
The COVID-19 Relief Fund has also enabled COA to provide food and other essential supplies to seniors who are not enrolled in their programs but need help now as a direct result of COVID-19.
“This is an extraordinary time for everyone, but seniors are particularly at risk. Our staff and provider networks are working hard to serve not only our existing clients, but also others in our community who now find themselves in need,” said Suzanne Burke, Council on Aging’s CEO. “We could not do this without community support and the response has been tremendous.”
