CHARLESTON SENIOR ACTIVITY CENTER TALK


By Nikki Claiborne, Site Director


Everyone here at the Charleston Senior Center would like to wish everyone a very safe and Merry Christmas!


****Dec 11 th , Kristen Robertson from Area on Aging came here and talked about a new grant available. The VOCA grant. The Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) grant was awarded to us to provide direct services to elderly victims of crime in Sebastian and Franklin Counties. The presentation was “what is VOCA and how can it help people” speech. The best part about this grant is that people do not have to report the crime to law enforcement. Agency staff is able to determine if someone qualifies for our services. Anyone who is a victim of a crime aged 50 and older and lives in Franklin or Sebastian


County is eligible to be helped. Contact Nikki at the Charleston Senior Center for more information.

call to find out! Please know that in the event of severe weather, some activities may be canceled and rescheduled for safety precautions.
