Meals and Miles in May Campaign

Catholic Charities Senior & Caregiver Support Services (CCSCSS) is the Meals on Wheels provider for the senior population in Schenectady County.  Last year, we provided nearly 94,000 nutritious meals to 380 individuals. Similarly, our transportation service provides more than 500 clients the opportunity to get to and from their medical appointments, to our Friendship Cafés, or to our Dayhaven social adult day program.

Many of us take both food and transportation for granted; but to our senior population, these are invaluable lifelines helping them maintain dignity as well as the continued ability to live in their community.  Simply put, we are improving the quality of life for every client we serve and we ask for your assistance so we can do more. 

We are pleased to have secured a number of partners for our “Meals and Miles in May” campaign, namely Fidelis Care and Home Instead Senior Care.  Thanks to these top sponsors, along with many other businesses, we have raised $5,000 towards this campaign. 

Help us match this by making a contribution to our “Meals and Miles in May” effort. To support this cause, click on the following link and enter "Meals and Miles in May" in the Comments section. Click here to donate and support this effort!

March for Meals - Thank you!

The month of March mobilized hundreds of local Meals on Wheels programs across the country to reach out to their communities and build the support that will enable them to serve America's seniors all year long. The 17th annual March for Meals campaign gave businesses, organizations, governments and volunteers who contribute so generously in their communities an opportunity to support homebound seniors to make America stronger and healthier. 

Catholic Charities Senior & Caregiver Support Services (CCSCSS) wants to thank everyone who supported this year's event.  In particular, New York State Senator James Tedisco, Town of Glenville Supervisor Chris Koetzle, Town of Rotterdam Supervisor Steven Tommasone, CCSCSS Board of Directors members Jason Ellis and JulieAnn Calareso, Town of Rotterdam Attorney Kate McGuirl, Capital Region Chamber President Mark Eagan, and Bishop of Albany Edward Scharfenberger.  Your involvement assisted this agency in raising awareness for the growing number of seniors facing hunger and isolation in Schenectady County.

Teresian House Community Outreach Respite Program

Are you feeling stressed from day-in, day-out round-the-clock care of supervision of an elderly relative? Are you unable to take a weekend away or a short vacation for lack of trustworthy alternate care arrangements? Thanks to generous funding through the Troy Savings Bank Foundation, Teresian House is offering a program to give assistance to those in need of temporary respite care that are either unable to afford the daily rate and are currently not enrolled in Medicaid.
