Coffee County Senior Center has been awarded a grant from Thanks Mom & Dad Fund, a charity that honors parents, grandparents, and mentors by supporting programs and services for older adults.
Coffee County Senior Center was included among 53 senior centers across Georgia that received a Senior Center Innovation mini-grant. These Senior Center Innovation grants, in partnership with the Georgia Department of Human Services, allow centers to update facilities and offer new programs.
In addition to the Senior Center Innovation Grants, Thanks Mom & Dad Fund awarded 11 annual grants to organizations serving older Georgians across the state. Thanks Mom & Dad Fund distributed more than $130,000 for grants this year to fill the funding gap faced by programs serving older Georgians and their caregivers.
