Why We Need Your Help...
North Shore Senior Center receives funding from a variety of sources but most importantly from individuals and corporations like you.
By supporting our Gala, you can ensure that seniors, regardless of their financial status, receive the resources of compassionate care and support they need to remain independent and active. Through your partnership, seniors who see no alternative but premature nursing home placement will find options through our programs and services. Seniors who may be lonely and isolated will meet new friends and develop new interests. Older adults and their families caught in the frustration of dementia will spend their days in a positive home-like environment filled with stimulating activities and caring staff members. North Shore Senior Center subsidizes every single program and service we offer to make sure each one is affordable to all seniors. As a charitable organization, we do not seek to make a profit, but we do use our resources very wisely to ensure their most effective use as we look to friends and donors like you for assistance. For example, programs and services that your donations support are:
Philanthropic gifts are used to “close the gap” between government funding of programs and services and the actual costs covered through the general operating budget.
Your generosity will influence the quality of care for thousands of older adults who have limited financial resources and equally limited support systems.
The Mission of North Shore Senior Center is to foster the independence and well-being of older adults, enhance their dignity and self respect, and promote their participation in and contribution toward all aspects of community life.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the
number of seniors age 65 and older in 2010 was 40,228,712. The
projected number for 2030 is 72,091,915. Twenty years after that, the
number of seniors in the same category will be at 88,546,973. Those
seniors will have new needs and concerns not experienced by their
parents. Many will be disabled and greater numbers will suffer from dementia and experience increased isolation. Who will understand and meet their needs?
North Shore Senior Center will. We have been in the business of serving
seniors since 1956 and have built a reputation of caring, competence
and professionalism. We, better than many organizations, possess the
experience, combined with a vision for the future, that can sustain today’s
seniors and those of tomorrow. We are the “go to” community organization
for local clergy, police and community members who know of seniors
needing help or who need education themselves to address the needs of
older community or family members. Our reach even extends internationally
as we provide individual case management services to an increasing
number of local seniors with families living abroad.
