Many seniors and people with disabilities living in our community face critical food, housing, and mobility challenges every day that undermine their life quality and put them at risk for health crises.
Donating to GLSS is one way you can help make sure that more elders and people with disabilities who are struggling get the help they need.
Your donations support these programs:
The Lique Living Legacy Fund
The fund allows the agency to reach beyond its human service mission to provide quick, meaningful assistance to clients needing a helping hand with unusual or unexpected expenses: the kind of emergencies that occur in everyone’s life but that can have a devastating effect on seniors struggling to maintain their independence. Quite simply, it buys a new pair of eyeglasses or needed food or an air conditioner to keep a homebound client comfortable during a heatwave.
The Caregiver Program
The Caregiver Program works with caregivers so they can keep their loved ones at home in a loving environment for as long as possible. The program provides education, support groups, and, if money allows, devices such as voice assistants, safety products, and tactile products to help at home.
Memory Cafes are a place where people with memory loss and their families and friends can share fun and laughter in a safe environment. GLSS hosts a Memory Cafe on the third Thursday of every month at the Lynn Museum from 10 am to 12 pm. We need your help to keep this going.
Meals on Wheels
Day in and day out, Meals on Wheels provides nutritious meals to homebound, isolated senior citizens and adults with disabilities. Sometimes the Meals on Wheels drivers are the only people they will see that day. It isn't just a meal; it is human contact. This helps make our communities more livable for everyone. Local companies can also help by sponsoring a route on our new Meals on Wheels Vans as well.
Emergency Fuel Assistance Fund
Like the Lique Living Legacy Fund, the Emergency Fuel Assistance Fund has been established to provide support to seniors in the community who are already “living on the edge,” just barely hanging on to their independence, struggling to make ends meet on very low, fixed incomes, forced to make difficult decisions in the face of rising energy costs.
