" During my time on the CAC Board of Directors, I’ve seen the positive impact the Senior Companion Program has on participants. This past year has been extremely trying and so many seniors in our community have been fortunate enough to have companions. I’m running for Snowflake Ball King to bring more awareness to the amazing work being done, and to potentially generate more interest for those able to donate time or resources." - Charles Lomax

Story

Did you know that 40% of seniors in our community experience isolation on a regular basis? Can you imagine growing older in your home without the support of any family, friends, neighbors, or financial stability? Whom would you call for help?

For over 300 seniors in Knox County, the answer is the CAC Senior Companion Program. This unique program mobilizes senior volunteers to provide support to homebound, lonely, and isolated older adults - free of charge.

The Senior Companion volunteers receive a small stipend for their service which helps them purchase necessities such as food and medicine. Your donation today will go towards covering the stipend, meals, and transportation costs for Senior Companion Volunteers.
