Hamline Midway Elders - Living at Home Program

A nonprofit organization

$3,606 raised by 40 donors

100% complete

$2,000 Goal

Our mission is to enable elders to remain in their homes with independence, dignity & choice.

Like so many others, Hamline Midway Elders has shifted our services and programs during the pandemic to continue to support the older adults in our area. We have delivered hundreds of hot meals directly to the doors of elders, continued our classes and groups in online and hybrid formats, provided hundreds of rides to medical appointments, sent dozens of raking and yard help volunteers to seniors' homes, and never stopped one-to-one direct support with friendly phone calls, safety checks, advocacy, application assistance, food support, and referrals. We are still here for our older neighbors. 

And now we are back in-person, serving over 1,000 meals each year through our monthly luncheon, hosting wellness classes, providing rides, and direct assistance to neighborhood seniors. We are a strong and important part of our community.

We have not been able to hold our in-person fundraisers, however, and we need your support to continue our important work. Your gift of $50 will provide 5 medical appointment rides for seniors. Your gift of $100 provides 10 hot meals. Your gift of $250 funds a full session of hybrid active wellness classes for homebound and in-person elders. Your gift of $500 provides an entire lunch delivery for our elder community.

More About Hamline Midway Elders

Hamline Midway Elders was founded in 2001 by a group of volunteers and community leaders as a neighborhood nonprofit organization that provides services to help seniors live independently at home.

The goals of our services and programs are to:

  • Help enable seniors to remain living in their homes for as long as they choose by coordinating formal and informal services including Live Well at Home screenings, transportation, chore services, friendly visits/phone calls, caregiver support, blood pressure checks, information & referrals, and service coordination.   
  • Provide seniors and other community members with education and social interaction opportunities in their neighborhood by coordinating a variety of health/wellness promotion activities including monthly luncheons, exercise classes, chair yoga classes, library presentations, and several annual community events.

We accomplish a great deal with just four part-time staff - because the strength of our program is the generous support of over 150 community volunteers who are committed to improving the lives of neighborhood seniors.
