The mission of Made to Stay is to provide a non-profit membership organization for senior members of McCracken county to enable them to remain in their own homes by providing services which they may not be able to provide for themselves due to age or health. The senior will be required to purchase a membership which will give them access to the services of the organization. The organization will be made up of senior members, volunteers, and staff. Services depend on volunteer availability and include such things as: transportation, small home repairs, yard work, social events, friendly calls and visits to check on well-being, and a list of preferred service providers.
We are part of the "village organization" movement which is growing across the U.S. and is outlined on the Village to Village website. We have recently formed and will begin taking members and offering services on January 1, 2015. We currently operate out of the director's home. As of December 2016, we have completed over 950 service requests for our members. We have 18 members and 12 active volunteers.
