Thursday pick-up only from 10 AM to 2 PM (NOT BEFORE).This program has grown to over 400 boxes each month and we need your full cooperation in order to continue. Pickups MUST BE made on this day. If you or your designated proxy are unable to pick up on the scheduled day, we must hear from you by 4:00 PM on that day or it will be counted as a "no show". Two "no shows" within a six month period will result in removal from the program. We WILL NOT give out boxes the following day unless prior arrangements have been made. We have a lengthy waiting list so we must adhere to our policy.

As of April 1, 2010, all applicants must show ID and proof of residency on their first pick-up (proxies will need ID). Also, the rules for the program concerning pick-ups on designated days will be strictly enforced due to the number of applicants on the waiting list. We SUGGEST that you have at least 2 people as proxies on your application that can pick up for you. If you have any questions you may call us.

SUPPORT OF SENIORS

Allwell Behavioral Health Services is partnering with the Center for Seniors to 

provide services covering mental health issues. As individuals age, a different set of challenges effect them and adjustment sometimes is difficult. The senior years can be filled with loss of friends and family, pain often from illness, and lack of purpose from no longer working and having different roles within the family. All of these can cause depression, isolation and loss of hope, and are conditions many seniors try to keep to themselves. Allwell Behavioral Health is providing licensed counselors on site at the Center for Seniors in a joint effort to provide seniors the help they need for mental health issues in a place where they are comfortable, that is familiar and where they are surrounded by support. If you are interested or in need of services, contact Becky to schedule an appointment with SUPPORT OF SENIORS (SOS). For a list of our current GROUP classes, click here.
