• Applicant’s ability to access other resources

The We Care Fund is here to help support our employees during difficult times of financial stress or crisis.

Happy Senior Citizens Day!

The day provides an opportunity to show our appreciation for their dedication, accomplishments, and services they give throughout their lives.

Their wealth of knowledge, skill, and experience offer so much to the next generation. As technologies advance, these are the people who’ve experienced each step of change. Not only have they contributed to it, but they understand first hand the benefits and the drawbacks. They know life without the advancements that exist today.

Spend some time with the senior citizens you know. Let them know they are appreciated and loved. We are so thankful for the many senior citizens we serve at Touching Hearts at Home.
