We work to foster independence and dignity for homebound seniors in Montgomery County by providing them with nutritious meals, caring contacts, and transportation.
Help Us Help Homebound Seniors
Through the efforts of Meals on Wheels staff and volunteers, over 850 homebound seniors in Montgomery County are able to remain in their homes where they want to be! We help them avoid high costs of nursing home care and alleviate the stress of caregiving. Our service provides a hot, nutritious meal, a safety check, and a friendly smile from one of our volunteers.
Seniors are the fastest growing population in Montgomery County. With age, they lose the ability to cook and to drive. Unable to safely perform these tasks, seniors face malnutrition, a loss of independence, and a lack of human connection.
