We need you! In order to continue meeting the urgent and growing needs the COVID-19 pandemic has created in our community we need volunteers to help deliver meals and make social phone calls to our members who are sheltering in place.

On March 16th, ACCA closed the majority of our 14 aging service programs. Because we were prepared, in less than 48 hours, we were able to transition our entire agency’s service delivery model into one critical mission that no senior will be left behind.

We are concentrating ACCA’s resources into the meals on wheels model of service delivery, focusing on three areas: food and basic needs, security checks and virtual social connections for all we serve.
