It's easy to GET INVOLVED . . .
Eras Senior Network is excited to work with the community to fill up to 900 self-sufficiency gifts for seniors and adults with disabilities living on a fixed income. Recipients living in Milwaukee County and Waukesha County must be current clients of Eras and have a demonstrated need for the gifts. Due to COVID-19, we are focusing on the most basic needs. Please help us give at least $50 in gift cards and postage stamps to each of our recipients.
Did you know that 15% of Waukesha County older adults and 17% of Milwaukee County older adults qualify for government-funded Family Care Services (healthcare and nutrition services are provided for them)? Many of the remaining 85% of the older adult population in Waukesha County and 83% of older adult 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 older adults cannot afford to pay for private services and must rely on community services available at no cost. Milwaukee County and Waukesha County’s rapidly growing and aging older adult 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 2022 Holiday Giving Program, especially in light of the growing needs of the older adults and adults with disabilities in our community.
