Impact Services’ mission is to provide nutritious meals and enable our neighbors to live independently. Our organization provides services to senior citizen in the northwest suburbs. December 2019 seems like ages ago, but that is when Impact Services merged with the Meals on Wheels program that served the cities of Coon Rapids and Blaine. With that merger we doubled the number of people we served daily. Add the pandemic, and we went through another significant increase in the number of seniors and people with disabilities that we served.

• In December 2019, we were serving 120 people.

• In March 2020, we were serving 160 people.

• In November of 2020 we were serving 260 people.

This year, we are proud to say that we merged with the Southern Anoka County Meals on Wheels program in June. With that merger, Impact Services now provides Meals on Wheels services for all of Anoka County and the City of Champlin. This November, we are serving 400 people, and the need continues to grow.

The organization also hosts The Voice of Impact, a choir for people living with dementia and their caregivers. This group meets on Mondays and uses music to open memory. Participants sing, laugh, and build community together during their rehearsals. The Voices of Impact, a choir for people living with dementia and their caregivers, had to stop meeting in person during COVID. It was an exciting day this fall when the choir was able to meet together for the first time in more than fifteen months to sing and prepare for their upcoming holiday concert. On that first day watching a gentleman grin as he saw his friend for the first time in months and patted the seat next to him so they could sing together was heartwarming for everyone in the room.

The Voices of Impact provides an opportunity for people living with dementia to use music to open up their memory. Many people living with dementia find themselves very isolated. The choir gives them an avenue to be in public and have interactions with people who understand their situation.

Impact Services’ Answer to Aging program provides families with one source to help guide conversation surrounding the concerns that arise with the aging-process and avoid the numerous crises that arise with aging. Our Family Aging Education is a resource for families to create a plan surrounding financial, legal, housing, safety and security and personal care concerns. Impact Services provides seminars surrounding these topics with local experts to help education and guide families during these crucial times.

Today, we need your help! The need of our seniors is great. Supplying home delivered meals and activities to lessen isolation are more important now than they have ever been. Your contribution will help make this happen for seniors throughout our community.

 Thank you in advance for help Impact Services meet our mission.
