SourcePoint recently launched its annual giving campaign, an opportunity to show support for the aging services provided in Delaware County. By donating to the nonprofit organization, community supporters can join SourcePoint in promoting and providing healthy aging opportunities for every adult age 55 and older in the county.

Since 1995, SourcePoint has provided in-home care services that help local seniors live safely and independently at home, including Meals on Wheels, transportation to medical appointments, help with personal care, mental health counseling and more.

“Each person we serve has a unique set of circumstances and needs,” said Robert Horrocks, executive director of SourcePoint. “SourcePoint is proud to have the resources and expertise in place to address those needs, whether an individual is 55 or 95. We are appreciative of the wonderful support we receive from the community, from those who volunteer to those who support us financially.”

In addition to in-home care, SourcePoint provides opportunities for social connection, education, physical well-being, and adjustment through the transitions of aging for Delaware County adults ages 55 and better. The enrichment center offers a fully equipped fitness center, warm-water exercise pool, and spaces for activities, such as dance, art, music and more.

“We’re blessed to have a community of thriving adults at the center,” said Horrocks. “More than half our enrichment center programs are free of charge, and there are scholarship funds available for those who need assistance. Private donors fund those scholarship dollars, which goes to show every gift has an impact.”

Private donations help fill gaps that other funding sources cannot fully support, as well as keep pace with the rapid growth of the county’s older population.

To make a gift to support healthy aging in Delaware County, go to MySourcePoint.org/give or contact Development Officer Julie Zdanowicz at 740-203-2420.

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. Services and programs are supported in part by the local senior services levy, corporate and private donations, sponsorships, grants, and by the Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging. SourcePoint is a United Way agency.
