The holiday season is a time for family, happiness and joy. For many senior citizens it is a time of loneliness, isolation and sadness. Over 11% of Tarrant County’s population is comprised of adults age 60 or older and of this, 10% live below 150% of the federal poverty line (United Way 2007).
Senior citizens are faced with difficulty in meeting their basic needs on a limited income, lack much needed resources or isolated which can lead to severe depression. As concerned citizens it is important that we remember to care for our elderly family, friends and neighbors
Since 1998, the City of Fort Worth through its Community Action Partners Program, has committed to serving these vulnerable seniors by ensuring that they are remembered during the holiday season.
Seniors, deemed homebound and/or isolated from community support, are identified through partnerships with local social services agencies, nursing facilities, and community organizations across Tarrant County and brought into the program.
