management for senior programs at CIEDC
Send a link to a friend
The CIEDC has undergone several changes
recently. A new executive director joined the organization on Aug.
23, and with the recent resignation of a program director, changes
for the senior services offered at CIEDC are under way. Angie
Jenkins was named senior programs director and Kelly Allen was named
the senior programs assistant.
This is not only a change in management, but also a change in the
Community Action Agency's organizational structure. CIEDC provides
the elderly in its six-county service area with meal, transportation
and homemaker services. Prior to the recent appointment of Jenkins
as senior programs director, senior nutrition and transportation
services were managed separately from the homemaker services.
"Angie Jenkins and Kelly Allen were both employed with CIEDC, and
both have experience with the homemaker program," said Angela
Stoltzenburg, the recently appointed executive director. "This
change in management will improve communication between all senior
programs and save CIEDC an estimated $20,000 annually. Most
importantly, Angie Jenkins and Kelly Allen are both committed to
providing quality service to seniors in our service area."

The homemaking program provides housecleaning and personal care
services to individuals 60 and over. The senior transportation
programs provide transportation to seniors for medical appointments
and other necessary trips. Elderly and disabled citizens can also
take part in the senior nutrition program, which provides
home-delivered meals for a suggested donation.
