Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels (Fort Bend Seniors) is one of Fort Bend County’s oldest non-profit organizations and was born in 1974 by community leaders. During their first year of service, FBS provided 20,000 hot meals.
By 1976, the program became a non-profit organization and in 1981, Fort Bend Seniors joined the United Way of Texas Gulf Coast. Fort Bend Seniors is accredited through the Meals on Wheels Association of America as a Certified Nutritional Program.
Through the years, Fort Bend Seniors has evolved and now provides Meals on Wheels services to over 1,000 seniors daily from nine site locations throughout Fort Bend County and a site in Waller County. Fort Bend Seniors is the only organization that provides Meals on Wheels to all persons 60 years of age and over regardless of income, even though 85% of Fort Bend Seniors’ clients live at or below the poverty level.
Today, Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels provides comprehensive services and programs including Meals on Wheels, congregate meals, transportation, case management, health screenings, information and referral services, recreation and more. Each of these programs and services enable area seniors to remain in their homes and continue to be an integral part of the community for as long as possible.
Fort Bend Seniors looks forward to continuing to help older adults remain independent by providing necessary services and resources to improve their quality of life.
Best wishes for the New Year to you and your family from all of us at Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels. As we conclude our 39th year in business, we are grateful for your continued confidence and support. In this very busy world of ours, we seldom take the time to express our appreciation for the efforts of those who help us in many ways. So, we wanted to make certain you knew how appreciative we are. Special thanks to all of you who have contributed in ways small, large and unimaginable!
2013 was an exciting year for the agency! Our mission to serve the elderly in Fort Bend and Waller County is ongoing, and we would not be able to provide the services we do without the encouragement from our community.
As we enter 2014, and our 40th year in service to our community, we remain ever thankful for the support of our volunteers, dedication of our staff, and generosity of our benefactors. Without your committed support, we would not have been able to serve 280,000+ nutritious meals to the senior citizens in our communities.
All the best to you, your family, and your organization,
Are You Ready to Help Our Seniors???
