County OKs $100K to help seniors live at home

Pima County agreed Tuesday to fund half of the $200,000 needed to keep running two programs that help seniors live at home.

Also, a Tucson City Council subcommittee was expected Tuesday to consider a request from the Pima Council on Aging to pay the other half needed to run its Ambassadors and Neighbors Care programs.

The programs coordinate volunteers who provide a number of services to seniors such as meal preparation, home maintenance and transportation.

County supervisors praised the programs but said other jurisdictions besides the county and city should help fund them.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
