In July, GCSCC’s Board of Directors approved a strategic plan for the agency with these goals:

 

Goal #1: Determine and provide effective programs and services that meet the ever-changing needs and enrich the lives of our target population.

Goal #2: Assure financial sustainability for GCSCC

Goal #3: Optimize and integrate processes across all GCSCC programs

Goal #4: Ensure functional sustainability for the organization

About Us

Mission

Our purpose is to develop, strengthen, and provide programs and services that support the health, dignity and independence of older adults and adults with disabilities living in our communities.

Our Goal

Our goal is to do what families and neighbors would – if they could – prepare meals, take people to medical appointments and to do errands, provide opportunities for getting together with friends, untangle problems with Social Security and Medicaid and Medicare, obtain financial support when necessary, secure safe and affordable housing, identify opportunities for volunteering, and offer a shoulder to lean on in times of crisis.

We’re thrilled to announce that we have been chosen as an inaugural grantee for @arohaphilanthropies' Seeding #ArtfulAging initiative! Read the press release . . .
