Seniors suffer in silence as one of the most ignored segments of the population. These are not strangers to you or me; they are our grandparents, our friends, our church members and our neighbors. As we age, one of the fundamental elements of humanity, our independence, can be stripped away if no one is there to help. For our clients, independence means being able to safely live at home; and now we need your help to give our clients this gift of freedom. Just as each client is unique, so are the different ways you can help them stay at home: some need home delivered meals, others need companionship, and many need modifications to make their homes safe and accessible.

For so many of our community's seniors, the joy of a warm meal and human companionship comes from SWIRCA & More's Nutrition Program. It is our mission to provide local seniors access to hot, freshly prepared meals and feed those most in need. Whether it is from our 16 home delivered routes or our 20 meal sites located throughout Southern Indiana, SWIRCA personally serves over 800 hot nutritious meals each day; yet, we continue to have a wait list for our meals due to a lack of funding.
Our Activity Center is not just for playing bingo; it serves a far greater need. The Activity Center is a safe place where seniors can stay healthy, active, and independent. It provides a crucial social network for our 1,200 monthly members. The Center offers programs that help members learn to manage and delay the onset of chronic diseases, leading to improvements in their physical, social, and mental well-being. Support our Activity Center and give community members the opportunity to gradually age in their own homes, instead of a nursing facility.
Many of our clients are confined to their homes, as they are unable to go outside due to steps or walkways that have become boundaries. For most clients, all it would take is a simple ramp to give them their freedom back. SWIRCA's Servants at Work (SAWS) Project partners with local organizations using volunteer labor and donated funds to build our clients a bridge to independence. The project's mission is to construct high-quality, removable and reusable wooden wheelchair ramps for individuals of all ages in the community who cannot otherwise afford to free themselves from the imprisonment of their own home.
Your generosity today will give the gift of independence for tomorrow. Please know that your donation will help our clients and is 100% tax deductible. Tax ID- 35-1330782.
