“The transportation services have been wonderful, I used them during my cancer treatments for prescription pickus and doctor appointments.  Everyone has been friendly, kind and professional.  I recently started Meals-on-Wheels to help with my nutritional needs, so far the meals are very good and easy for me to prepare”

“I cannot say enough good things abot the Meals-on-Wheels  program and the Silver Streak Transportation program;  it is so very needed, especially to the senior residents in Pioneer, we could not survive without these services.  David has been a wonderful transportation driver and Ray is a face I look forward to seeing each week.  Thank You”

Now more than ever, older seniors living in our rural communities are struggling with food insecurity, lack of adequate transportation, isolation and loneliness.

Each month, Common Ground Senior Services delivers more than 5,000 meals to homebound seniors.  We provide more than 200 rides for seniors needing to go to medical appointments, the pharmacy, and shopping.

With your support, we can do more. . .
