Grant Awarded to Mendon Council on Aging

The Mendon Council on Aging has been awarded a $1,875 mini-grant from Community Partners for Health (CHNA-6) to supplement an existing $1,755 grant from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs to hire a part-time Outreach Worker.

The position funded by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs is a new one, and only covers a five-hours-per week position at $13/hour for a period of 27 weeks. The mini-grant from Community Partners for Health (CHNA-6) will enable that part-time position to be expanded to a full 52 weeks, and will allow $250 for mileage reimbursement. This will ensure continuity of a new program for a full year.

The two grants will allow the Mendon Senior Center to help determine the mental health and other health needs of the senior citizens within the Town of Mendon. The intended outcomes of this project are: First, to survey the town's senior citizen population and develop a database of those who need assistance and what types of assistance they need. Second, the project will involve actually commencing needed outreach work with those senior citizens.

The CHNA-6 grant application was submitted by Council on Aging Chairman Robert Carlson and Senior Center Director Amy Wilson Kent, assisted by volunteer Kevin Rudden.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health established the Community Health Network program in 1992. Community Partners for Health (CHNA-6) is the designated Community Health Network Area (CHNA) for the communities of Bellingham, Blackstone, Douglas, Franklin, Hopedale, Medway, Mendon, Milford, Milford, Millville, Northbridge, Sutton, Upton and Uxbridge.
