Senior Adult Services Board votes to Merge Operations with Metrocrest Social Services
After nearly a year spent analyzing the feasibility of joining efforts to provide aid and support services to residents in Addison, Carrollton, Coppell and Farmers Branch, Tracy Eubanks, Chief Executive Officer of Metrocrest Social Services, and I, as the Executive Director of Senior Adult Services, are pleased to announce a merger between the two local nonprofit agencies.
Both organizations focus on helping community members maintain their independence and quality of life. The programs of each organization have been developed over many years to respond to critical needs in the community. Through Senior Adult Services older residents receive assistance with information on resources and issues related to aging, home repairs, delivered meals and transportation. Through Metrocrest Social Services residents receive help with rent, utility bills, food and employment. For seniors, this merger will both enhance and strengthen the services primarily designed for seniors and provide easier access to the services available through Metrocrest Social Services when they are needed.
...the merger will improve the coordination of programs, allow the addition of new services...
