It's easy to GET INVOLVED . . .
Eras Senior Network is excited to work with the community to fill up to 1,100 self-sufficiency gifts for seniors and adults with disabilities living on a fixed income. This is our highest number of recipients ever! Recipients living in Waukesha and Milwaukee counties must be current clients of Eras and have a demonstrated need for the gifts. Due to COVID-19, we are mailing all of our gifts in a holiday card and focusing on the most basic needs. While our wish list has fewer items, we aim to serve more than double the number of clients we served in 2019. Please help us give $50 in gift cards and postage stamps to each of our recipients.
Did you know that 15% of Waukesha County seniors and 17% of Milwaukee County seniors qualify for government-funded Family Care Services (healthcare and nutrition services are provided for them)? Many of the remaining 85% of the senior population in Waukesha County and 83% of senior population in Milwaukee County are at risk of malnutrition, homelessness, premature institutionalization, and inadequate healthcare due to increasing fees/taxes/premiums and lack of personal/family resources and needed transportation options. These seniors cannot afford to pay for private services and must rely on community services available at no cost. Waukesha County's rapidly growing and aging senior population requires ongoing, community-based, accessible and affordable care to assist in maintaining a safe level of independent living and avoiding government funding to subsidize nursing home care.
We hope you will consider supporting the 2020 Holiday Giving Program, especially in light of the growing needs of the seniors and adults with disabilities in our community.
