Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

One in five Americans is aged 60 or older, with an average life expectancy of a record high 79 years. Our country's senior population, currently at 58 million, is expected to double by 2020. For low-income seniors, the threat of hunger is real.

Meals On Wheels

Meals on Wheels of Southwest Ohio & Northern Kentucky delivers over half a million nutritious meals directly to the homes of low-income homebound seniors. We provide so much more than a meal, though -- our trained, professional Meal Delivery Associates also reduce loneliness and provide a safety and wellness check at each visit.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are passionate about ending senior hunger and isolation. Our goals are bold, creative, and include:
- Ensuring that no senior in need of home-delivered meals goes without.
- Combatting loneliness and isolation through our regular Meals on Wheels deliveries, but also in creative ways during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
- Engaging volunteers in all aspects of our operations.
- Leveraging our transportation and delivery infrastructure to bring other basic needs (groceries, personal care items, and other necessities) to the doorsteps of seniors with limited mobility and transportation options.
- Bringing a spirit of innovation to everything we do.
- Ensuring that seniors are an integral part of designing programs and services that will impact them.
- Giving voice and advocating for issues affecting older adults.

Wesley Community Services served its 5,000,000th meal in 2017.
