BEAM Launches New Senior Services Program

BEAM Launches New Senior Services Program

While many seniors are already accessing our food pantries or seeking financial assistance, some suffer from disability, illness, lack of transportation, loneliness and more. These challenges, coupled with little to no family nearby, create barriers to economic self-sufficiency and independence. Our goal is to ensure beaches area seniors live comfortably and independently for as long as possible by increasing access to systems of care available at BEAM or other local partners.

BEAM is pleased to share the addition of a new Senior Program Case Manager, Debbie Andalora. Debbie has over 25 years of non-profit experience. She began her career as a clinical social worker in Western New York and has extensive experience in program development, evaluation, volunteer management, collaboration and more.
Debbie, alongside other staff and volunteers, will provide focus and resources to meet the increasing needs of seniors in our community. We also seek to develop a network of volunteers and business partners interested in providing individualized care to seniors in the program. This may include visiting, grocery delivery, transportation services, minor home repairs, yard work, help with correspondence, etc.
For more information or ways to get involved, please contact Senior Program Case Manager Debbie Andalora at debbie@jaxbeam.org or (904) 241-7437 x 110.
