County OKs $100K to help seniors live at homeby Brad Branan on Oct. 11, 2006, under Family, Local, Special
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.
