It’s a season of celebrations here at ACCA! We’re so touched by the generosity of our community and its care for older adults.
Through YOUR support of ACCA, we…
- provided rides through our transportation service,
- offered care to older adults and people living with disabilities through our Adult Day Health,
- helped people learn job and life skills through our Senior Community Service Employment program,
- served families through providing case management, support groups, and family activities in our Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program, and
- delivered meals to older adults in Athens and Winder.
We’re so grateful for the impact you’ve helped us make on our older neighbors. It’s only through community support, like yours, that we have continued to thrive. And we need your help to continue to make a difference! Thank you for supporting ACCA, our mission and our seniors in need.
