Ways to Give

Choose the way that works best for you.

Older adults and people with disabilities often face difficult challenges to living independently, because they don’t know if their health will hold up, if their money will hold out, or maybe their family has moved away and they lack social supports. Just as many lifesaving services are needed—meals, transportation, home accessibility modifications and personal care, to name a few—there are many ways for you to give. Each gift empowers your neighbors in Central Indiana to live as independently as possible, while helping him or her with necessary activities of daily living.
