The Senior Community that Central KY Community Action (CKCAC) serves is proving that age is just a number. CKCAC is proud to provide a variety of very influential programs, that allow our seniors to stay active, share a hot meal with friends, have accessible transportation, maintain independent living and give back to their communities. Here are some numbers on our seniors from the past 2018-2019 Fiscal Year:

  • 109 seniors received care and companionship through the Senior Companion Program.
  • 600 senior commodity boxes were distributed in partnership with USDA and America’s Second Harvest of the Heartland.
  • 35,744 meals were served to seniors through the CKCAC Congregate Meals Program.
  • 28,875 volunteer hours from our 117 Retired Senior Volunteer Program at 17 different volunteer stations.
  • 1,282 seniors enrolled in the CKCATS Transportation Program. During this time, CKCATS logged a total of 1.76 million miles, providing safe and reliable transportation options to thousands of people across the region during the 2018-2019 Fiscal Year.

To our seniors in Hardin County; we will be hosting an Open House in April, for all seniors to come and meet our new RSVP Director, Melissa Bland.
