Written by

CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions has received $50,000 from the Central Indiana Senior Fund, a CICF Fund, the third installment of a Key Provider three-year grant. The grant supports CICOA’s general operating needs in its role as a key provider of services for older adults.

The investment from the Central Indiana Senior Fund, a CICF Fund, will be used by CICOA to keep seniors living safely and independently in place, provide access to healthy food and nutrition supports, and provide transportation services. CICOA meets these basic needs for clients through its Safe at Home, Meals & More, and Way2Go services.

“The Key Provider grant provides much-needed support for CICOA clients,” said Mary Durell, interim president and CEO of CICOA.

“Our partnership with the Central Indiana Senior Fund ensures that older adults in our community have basic needs met so they can live the last chapters of their lives with a sense of dignity and worth.”

The fund not only provides responsive grant-making support, but also endeavors to be strategic and proactive in their funding by identifying and addressing the unique needs of, and opportunities for, the aging population.
