The July Mission Offering is designated for Southeast Seniors, a Living at Home Block Nurse Program.Southeast Seniors was created by the Southeast Minneapolis neighborhood in 1988 to help neighborhood seniors stay living at home with an enhanced quality of life. Southeast Seniors is a non-profit community based, home-care agency serving the neighborhoods of Como, Marcy-Holmes and Prospect Park in Minneapolis.
Southeast Seniors provides a variety of services to more than 300 seniors over 65 in Southeast Minneapolis. Services include companionship visits, shopping assistance, rides to appointments and nursing visits for various needs among others. These services allow seniors to remain in their own homes for much longer than would otherwise be possible. The seniors save money and have an improved quality of life. Charges for healthcare services are minimal and based on ability to pay; other services are provided by volunteers. You are encouraged to volunteer as well as to contribute. There are some neat people out there, with a variety of experiences and interests that you would otherwise not meet. Southeast Seniors is celebrating over 25 years of service. Join them in that celebration. Please place your donations in the offering plate and put "SE Seniors" in the memo line of your check or on the envelope. Help support our Vision...Seniors at home: comfortable, connected, empowered, safe. For more information please visit http://www.seseniorsmpls.org/.
