Silver Key Silver Key officially opened their doors in October 1971 with grant monies from the Older Americans' Act, which initially provided funding for one staff member. From these humble beginnings, a one-room office was opened and a Nursing Home Volunteer Program was to mitigate the effects of isolation and loneliness for elderly persons living in local care facilities.  It was not long before Silver Key felt a need to broaden its mission to include seniors who desired to remain in their homes as they aged. Silver Key was created in 1970 by a group of conscientious citizens who wished to improve the quality of life for elderly citizens living in nursing homes. www.silverkey.org
TESSA TESSA was established in May 1977 in response to a high rate of calls to local law enforcement from women threatened or assaulted by their partners.  At the time, Domestic Violence was considered a private matter and resources were difficult to locate, if they existed at all. With assistance from within the legal and philanthropic communities TESSA ermerged as an information provider and resource referral service.  That initial effort has evolved into a multi-faceted agency that includes a confidential Safehouse, Victim Advocacy, Counseling and Children’s Programs, a 24/7 Crisis Line, and Community Outreach and Education. Through these efforts, TESSA strives to realize our vision of a community free of personal violence for all. Tessacs.org

Imagine – No More Malaria The United Methodist Church’s effort to eliminate malaria deaths in Africa in this generation.  Achieving this goal starts with you! Are you aware that in Africa 1 person dies every 60 seconds from malaria which is carried by these annoying blood seeking female mosquitoes? Pregnant women and children are most affected. Great strides have been made by the 300 hospitals, clinics and health centers supported by our denomination. It is important the African people continue to be educated about this dreadful disease that can be prevented by elimination of breeding areas, prompt treatment of bites and the use of net coverings at night.www.imaginenomalaria.org
