New management for senior programs at CIEDC

Send a link to a friend

[SEPT. 8, 2005]  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.

For more information or eligibility requirements, contact CIEDC at (217) 732-2159.
