Programs Funded:

  • Meals on Wheels Support Fund
    SRB subsidizes meals for low income Broomfield clients who cannot afford a fresh, hot, nutritious meal. 

     

  • Lakeshore Café Support Fund
    SRB subsidizes low income senior lunches at the Broomfield Community Center. This program helps many seniors enjoy a nutritious lunch at the center while socializing with friends.

     

  • Project Homecoming: Hospital Release and Recovery Program
    Upon release from a local hospital, Broomfield Seniors will receive 5 free meals through Meals on Wheels. This is a great way to let seniors know about the Meals on Wheels program. 

     

  • Healthy Hearts and Birthday Lunch Sponsorship
    Healthy Hearts lunches are the most popular lunches of the month. On average, ninety seniors enjoy this nutritious lunch, twice a month, at a reduced rate of $2.00. The lunch is followed by an educational presentation by the Public Health Nutritionist.

    Lakeshore Café celebrates seniors’ birthdays on a monthly basis. For some, this is the only chance they get to celebrate their birthday. SRB treats them to lunch and a special goodie bag.

     

  • Blizzard Bags
    Funds are used to purchase non-perishable food items for MOW seniors in the event of a blizzard. We filled 170 in October 2019 and in January 2020 we partnered with FISH and Elevations Credit Union to put together 180 bags.

     

  • Handyman/Chore Program
    Funds are used to pay for supplies for low income seniors in order to perform minor home maintenance and repairs.  These chores include installing safety bars, ramps, and low mobility accommodations.

     

  • Loan Closet
    SRB funds additional equipment needed in the loan closet; transport chairs, lightweight wheelchairs, transfer benches, shower chairs, walkers, etc. 

     

  • Special Events
    Funds are used for expenses for the annual Resource Fair and the Lakeshore Rocks Youth Volunteer Program.

     

  • Special Needs (hearing, dental, vision, hearing aids, miscellaneous)
    Funds are used on a case-by-case basis to address needs not covered by Medicare or other health insurance.

     

  • Caregiver Respite Program
    SRB supplements the funding received from DRCOG for new and existing clients.
