Many of the younger adults living with multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, schizophrenia, severe depression, and PTSD (especially veterans). Serving 500 homebound clients annually, meals are delivered by trained and compassionate volunteers Monday through Friday and are freshly prepared to meet each client’s specific dietary needs.
