Senior Concerns receives grant

Senior Concerns, a private nonprofit, recently received a $35,000 grant from the Ventura County Community Foundation for building repairs needed as a result of severe rain last year.

The facility in Thousand Oaks provides many services including an adult day program for seniors with cognitive or physical impairments, Meals On Wheels, a caregiver support center, senior advocacy, pro bono legal and financial services, information and referrals, and community education on aging.

“Our building is 25 years old and after the heavy rain last year, needed numerous repairs. The allocation of funds from our operating expenses to cover the repairs, along with the lost revenue from a three-week closure of the center to complete the work, had a significant, negative fiscal impact on our organization,” said Andrea Gallagher, Senior Concerns president.

The funds provided through the foundation will come from the E. Wright Daly Fund to support activities or programs in the field of health services to Ventura County residents.
