PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
The Senior Outreach Services Department provides outreach services under contract to Dane County to residents of the villages of McFarland, Cambridge, and Rockdale and all or part of the towns of Christiana, Dunn, Pleasant Springs, and Rutland. The department operates a congregate and home-delivered nutrition program in McFarland and a congregate meal site in Cambridge. Among the services provided to seniors are case management, social and recreational programming, foot care clinics, and transportation services.
The department also coordinates the work of many volunteers in a variety of capacities and helps coordinate food pantry and endowment programs. Departmental operations are budgeted in three separate programs: outreach services, special services, and nutrition programs. The department is funded in large measure by outreach and nutrition contract payments from Dane County and by contributions from other communities served.
The Senior Outreach Services Department is currently staffed by an Outreach Director, a part-time (35 hours per week) Outreach Case Manager, a part-time (24 hours per week) Outreach Case Manager, and three part-time Nutrition Site Managers. Volunteers also provide a variety of services to the department and its clients.
