SourcePoint’s south office at 1070 Polaris Parkway will close in September. The suite, which was leased in 2018, houses administrative offices for in-home care staff, information and referral specialists, and insurance specialists. Friday, Sept. 2, marks the last day the office is open to the public.
The lease expires in early 2023 and staff will transition back to the Cheshire Road location, as well as continue remote work opportunities, through the fall.
“SourcePoint prides itself on being good stewards of its resources, including taxpayer funding,” said Fara Waugh, CEO. “While the office space was helpful at a time we were expanding rapidly due to the growth of the older population in Delaware County, we have since found more efficient ways to address that need.”
The office suite also housed a community room for SourcePoint to host educational programs, such as New to Medicare classes and Caregiver Conversations. However, one of the organization’s strategic goals is to increase access to such programs by expanding partnerships with local businesses to reach various communities throughout the county.
“We want to expand access to valuable aging resources and programs by meeting individuals where they are,” said Waugh. “While the Cheshire Road facility is centrally located in the county and remains a key location, it is our goal to bring more programs to off-site locations in the coming years than ever before.”
SourcePoint is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that provides professional expertise, services, and programs for Delaware County adults who want to thrive after 55 and family caregivers. Services and programs are supported in part by the local senior services levy, corporate and private donations, grants, the Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging, and United Way of Delaware County.
