We are here to help you thrive independently in the place you call home. We know that many of you might just need a little extra help to do so, and that is why we exist.
We can help alleviate hunger, lack of transportation, loneliness, and fall risk.
How does it work?
- Services are based on need, not income.
- If you can donate for your services, we gladly accept it. If you cannot, this won’t affect your eligibility at all.
- Choose which services you want and use them as long as you need them. Meals on Wheels serves Fremont, Newark and Union City. Friendly Visitors, our Transportation Program, and Fall Prevention can serve anyone in Alameda County when services are needed and not otherwise available.
Get started by contacting the program coordinator of the program you’re interested in or sign-up online.
Meals On Wheels provides home-delivered nutritious mid-day meals for those who have a hard time preparing their own.
The Transportation Program gives rides for medical appointments and errands like grocery shopping. We train our volunteers to help you AT your destination.
Fall Prevention decreases your fear of falling and shows you things you can do every day to get stronger and have better balance. Falling is NOT inevitable.
Friendly Visitors matches older adults with volunteers who provide regular companionship or phone calls.
