Aging with Dignity
We are committed to mitigating aging’s most harmful threats through our home-delivered meals and senior centers. We provide safe spaces where older adults can congregate, share a meal, crack a smile, and create community.
Home Delivered Meals
YWCA is proud of our partnership with Meals on Wheels to deliver nutritious meals and provide companionship to seniors. By delivering a nutritious meal, friendly visit, and safety check daily, our program combats three of aging’s most harmful threats: inadequate nutrition, isolation, and declining quality of life. YWCA Metropolitan Phoenix is the only Meals on Wheels program that serves Glendale.
For more information on our program, call 623.931.7436.
At community centers throughout Glendale, seniors benefit from nutritious meals, social activities, and companionship. Our senior centers provide life-enriching outreach to our growing population of low-income elderly. We run our programs at Glendale Community Center, Glendale Adult Center, Japanese American Citizen’s League, and our very own West Valley Senior Center. Due to COVID-19 our community centers are currently closed, however, our congregate meal program is available for pick up. To learn about current program requirements, please call 623.931.7436.
We Feed Four Feet
In 2005, we learned that our homebound seniors were “sharing” their meals with their pets. Low-income seniors face continual spending decisions–often having to choose between eating and paying their bills. Some of our seniors were choosing to risk their own nutritional needs to feed their furry companions. With our We Feed Four Feet program, we acquire pet food through donations and funding and distribute it to seniors with pets in need.
Native Indian Council on Aging (NICOA) Opportunities
Through the Native Indian Council on Aging (NICOA) we provide training and work opportunities for older adults who have already exited the workforce. These individuals are looking for ways to get involved in their communities, make friends, create income, or learn new trades.
