Welcome to Mature Services
Serving older adults since 1975.
We are pleased to share our 2013-2015 Strategic Plan
As we approach 2015, our 40th Anniversary Year of service to the community, we felt the time was right to look back on our accomplishments, analyze our service sectors, and determine a comprehensive plan for the agency's future.
In addition, our mission statement is now: Mature Services provides high-quality programs to empower the economic, social, physical, and mental well-being of adults as they age.
We would like to thank the following for their generous contributions and continued support. These funds go directly to our programs and services.
Fairlawn Area Chamber of Commerce: Homecare - funds to provide essential errands and in-home services to homebound individuals in Summit County.
GAR Foundation: $50,000 grant for homecare services.
The Mary S. and David C. Corbin Foundation: $15,000 grant for homecare services.
The Charles E. and Mary K. Booth Family Fund of Akron Community Foundation: $2,000 grant for homecare services.
Another big thanks goes out to the Hartville Northside Vendors for donating a 'van full' of food items to our Emergency Food Pantry.
Winter Safety Awareness
This time of the year, we would like to bring attention to the risks and dangers associated with the cold weather, especially falls. The state of Ohio's fall prevention initiative Steady U offers many safety tips specifically targeted to older adults.
