In the state of Utah, over 200,000 of our seniors live in poverty. Unable to afford basic health, dental, and vision costs, many suffer in silence.
Some have little to no family support, and make due with minimal and insufficient public assistance.Founded in 2011, Senior Charity Care Foundation has stepped in to help fill this gap. Our Mobile Dental Clinics currently serve dozens of Care Facilities in Northern Utah, treating hundreds of seniors on a donated or heavily subsidized basis. We are looking to expand the breadth and quality of ourservicesincluding our new Vision and Audiology programs.AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs, made up of programs that take a different approach to improving lives and fostering civic engagement.
