In February’s Senior Independence Month, we celebrate our seniors, highlighting a key organization that provided essential services to 667 older adults in 2021.
February is a special month dedicated to our seniors. This is the time when we celebrate Senior Independence Month, focusing on supporting our older adults in their journey towards fulfilling, independent lives. It’s an opportunity for us to appreciate their contributions to our communities and to ensure they receive the essential services they need.
The Role of Catholic Charities of Newark
One organization making a significant impact is Catholic Charities of Newark. In 2021 alone, they served 667 older adults through 15 different programs. Their dedication to combating challenges faced by our seniors is inspiring and critical. Their work ranges from providing meals and health services to offering emotional support and companionship. They are committed to ensuring that Newark elders can enjoy the dignity and independence they deserve.
