Charting impact

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

We aim for seniors to be able to remain healthy, food secure, and socially connected in their own homes as long as possible.

We provide nutrition, transportation, and socialization services.

We are the largest meal provider in the 7 county region administered by the Golden Crescent Area Agency on Aging. We provide home-delivered meals on 27 routes throughout Victoria County and have recently expanded into the Cuero and Thomaston area of Dewitt County. We serve lunch and host activities at our senior center in Victoria, and we offer transporation services for medical and personal care appointments, shopping, and grocery shopping needs.

For over 40 years we have served the seniors of Victoria. Our services are expanding and we are seeking new ways to help ensure the safety and food security of Victoria's seniors as the senior population of the area grows.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Oct 01 - Sep 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
