Jackson County is a wonderful place to live ,and we attempt to keep as many senior citizens as possible living well here in the county.  

Our programs include: 

Our Seniors gather to share wonderful meals, socialize, and learn about any issues that may concern Seniors. We meet the 2nd and 4th Thursday each month (except Nov. and Dec.) including celebrating together Valentines, Easter, Senior Awards, Thanksgiving, Christmas and many other holidays and events.

(Older Americans Transportation Service) We provide transportation for Seniors to medical appointments as well as shopping and fun trips that require transportation to another county.  This program has become very popular. We have a shuttle bus and a smaller minivan, which enables us to provide transportation in a more economical manner. There are two regularly scheduled trips to Laramie each month and a flexible schedule for escort trips.

(aka Meals on Wheels) We deliver food to those Seniors who have difficulty getting out of their homes.  Our clients receive meals each week that include breakfast and lunch.  We are striving to increase this program to provide daily meals.  

Established in 2010, our Senior Center has become a popular place for Seniors to congregate.  We offer educational and entertaining programs, as well as medical services (i.e. flu clinic).  We also accommodate support groups.  Our Senior Center houses our staff office and provides a place for our board to meet.  Volunteers work very diligently to keep the Senior Center open Monday—Friday from 9:00 AM—3:00 PM.
