Interested in Helping a Senior In Need?

ElderSource, the Area Agency on Aging for Northeast Florida is looking for volunteers to help seniors sign up for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance program, commonly known as SNAP.  There are approximately 32,000 seniors living in northeast Florida who are potentially eligible for SNAP benefits, but are not taking advantage of this resource. grocery

Volunteers are needed to assist seniors with completing SNAP applications online, advocating for the benefits of the SNAP program, as well as educating the community against stigmas that prevent older adults from utilizing this program.

A minimum of four (4) hours per week is desired.  Call today and make a difference in the life of a senior! Contact Sherrie Keshner at 904.391.6688

ElderSource Board of Director Opportunities:

ElderSource has several opportunities for individuals to become engaged in the important work, discussions and decisions that involve aging issues in the seven counties we serve. We need strong voices, advocates and fundraisers to work with us to carry out our agency’s mission.

The ElderSource Board of Directors is responsible for the oversight and stewardship of the Area Agency on Aging and the Aging & Disability Resource Center. They have the fiduciary responsibility of ensuring these funds are properly managed and well used in providing quality services to those in greatest needed. These groups are primarily funded through state and federal resources, but we can use your help.

 

ElderSource Advisory Council: 

Members serve as voices for the counties in which they live. Advisory Council members are comprised primarily of individuals over the age of 60 who inform the ElderSource Board and Management of the needs of elders in their community and help with advocating on their behalf.

For information on any of the ElderSource Boards, please call 904.391.6600 or email info@myeldersource.org. We’d love to hear from you and how you can be part of our growing organization!
