Pullman Community Council on Aging operates almost entirely by volunteers. Financial support comes from generous community donations and grants, along with nominal fees for those able to pay (Meals on Wheels).
Senior Chore Service operates with a paid, part-time coordinator, but no fees are charged for assistance given to Pullman seniors. Donations provide support for the coordinator, as well as for costs of equipment and supplies used to assist seniors. The Council also employs a part-time administrative coordinator.
We welcome community donations for Meals on Wheels to allow us to continue offering meals to those in Pullman who may not be able to afford even those small amounts. PCCoA has never turned away potential Meals on Wheels clients for inability to pay, which is unusual compared to other programs. Donations also provide funds for keeping the program stocked with meal trays, delivery coolers, and other supplies.
The Guide to Senior Services is published and distributed free of charge, also funded by grants and donations. It is designed to help identify local community services for seniors and caregivers. It also includes information about senior housing communities, in-home health and hospice care, as well as health and safety hotlines and helpful national and regional websites.
