As a 501(c)3, ElderPoint serves all seniors in Polk County by providing access to fresh, nutritious food and transportation.
A small team, led by Executive Director Jane Hammond and an agile (well, so to speak) volunteer board, seeks out opportunities, collaborations, and sustainable ideas to serve seniors in need. Where they need services. That means where they live, shop, seek medical care, and go — from mobile produce markets at senior residences to congregate dining to doctor appointments to fun activities, such as movies and baseball games.
ElderPoint serves all seniors in Polk County who need assistance accessing fresh, nutritious food and/or transportation, including wheelchair-accessible transport. Clients are self-defined as elderly, based on individual circumstances. Services are intended to help seniors remain independent for as long as they can or wish to.
