Reaching Resources is a new partnership between the Legacy Fund Board Community Leadership Initiative and the Shepherd’s Center of Hamilton County. This service is a resource guide, advocate, and support for seniors in Hamilton County. A Reaching Resources Coordinator has up to date and accurate information about the resources, programs, and services for seniors in Hamilton County. They will help seniors with the improved referral process and connect them directly with the resource. Furthermore, they will complete a comprehensive intake interview to help determine what other services and resources the senior may benefit from in their area.
Reaching Resources serves as a central communication point for all organizations and as a resource for multiple organizations that currently work together—like Meals on Wheels, HAND, Good Samaritan Network, PrimeLife Enrichment, Trustee’s Offices, churches, and others. Reaching Resources take a proactive and holistic approach to helping seniors connect with resources to age in place, maintain independence, and improve quality of life.
