Wells Fargo Foundation gives $5000 for Material Aid

Elderbridge Agency on Aging management, staff, and Board of Directors want to thank Wells Fargo Foundation for their generous gift of $5,000 to be used in our Material Aid program. With Wells Fargo support, Elderbridge is able to continue our mission to advocate for and empower older adults, caregivers, and individuals with disabilities to pursue independent, healthy lives by filling a need.
Material aid fills gaps that cannot be met by any other means. It is a last resort. Material aid benefits low to-moderate income households. Consumers must meet income limits, and their requests must be medically necessary. Material aid is used to help move a senior to a different location if they’re not safe at home due to abuse. It may pay for a co-pay for needed medication, food, an emergency response system, repairs on floor tile that are a tripping hazard, respite care for an overworked caregiver needing a break and more. Material aid is an intervention strategy that lessens the burdens of government by resolving a need and keeping Iowans safe at home longer. Each year material aid funding runs out before the end of the fiscal year.
Thank you Wells Fargo for your help to support Elderbridge’s mission.
