Lutheran Community Services Northwest
of Matching Funds Remaining
Lutheran Community Services Northwest partners with individuals, families, and communities for health, justice and hope.
Retirees and senior citizens are the FUTURE of Kitsap County! More and more, our older adults are making sure their talents and skills are helping feed low income children, sheltering homeless families, getting support services to the frail, and much more. Meet Cheryl Smith. As a child of a military parent, Cheryl lived across the globe, grew up in many cultures and languages, and as an adult developed sharp professional skills in computing and organizational management. Now, as a retiree in her new permanent home community of Bremerton, Cheryl is putting those skills to excellent use. As a dedicated volunteer herself, she supports older adult volunteer placement and makes sure nonprofits have the people-power they need to serve their communities. Last year, Cheryl's work ensured almost 29,000 hours of volunteer labor came from Kitsap retirees and senior citizens and flowed into programs serving the entire county!
Funds raised will provide services to seniors through home care, respite care, caregiver support, senior publications, and senior volunteer opportunities.
