SOS offers three programs to provide "help, hope, and healing" to our young-at-heart seniors: Transportation, Helping Hands, and Social Outreach. Transportation "helps" by providing rides to routine medical appointments and necessary quality-of-life errands such as to the grocery store, pharmacy, and bank. Helping Hands inspires "hope" of remaining in one's own home by taking care of lawn maintenance, home repairs, annual home safety checks, the construction of wheelchair ramps, and installation of safety grab bars. Social Outreach enables "healing" of the feelings of loneliness and isolation by hosting monthly social events, coordination of Visiting Friends and Phone Friends volunteers to interact with seniors and providing Holiday Outreach food and gift baskets. All services are provided by caring volunteers at no cost to our clients. We serve 11 communities in Northeast Tarrant County including Bedford, Colleyville, Euless, Grapevine, Haltom City, Hurst, Keller, North Richland Hills, Richland Hills, Southlake, and Watauga. MCCC is supported by churches, youth groups, civic groups, businesses, and individuals who want to make a difference in the lives of seniors in the area.

SOS needs volunteers and contributions to support our three programs: Transportation, Helping Hands, and Social Outreach which provide compassion and care for our senior clients. We seek Transportation drivers to take clients to routine medical appointments and quality-of-life drives. We can always use more "Helping Hands" to perform minor home repairs. We need Adopt-a-Lawn volunteers to mow yards and provide minor yard maintenance during the growing season. Lawn equipment and positioning of a mower at the client's home is provided. Social Outreach volunteers who would like to interact with seniors by becoming a Visiting Friend or Phone Friend or help with the monthly socials are welcome. If you or someone you know has a passion for volunteering with seniors, please contact us. If you do not have time to volunteer, we can use your financial support of our programs. We would love to hear from you!
