‘We need a helping hand in life’: MVPSF helps local seniors in need

The Mountain View Public Safety Foundation’s Senior Care program was featured on Mountain View Voice! Check out the excerpt below, and read the full article here.

Seniors in the community who need assistance can print out the application for the Senior Care Fund on the our website. If someone needs help filling out the application, they can reach the Foundation at (650) 429-4367.

Bakary Diame comes to the Mountain View Senior Center almost every day to enjoy a meal and socialize with his friends, and he relies on a careful combination of biking and public transit to get there.

So when his bike was stolen earlier this year, “it disrupted the whole way that I function during the day,” he told the Voice.

But Diame didn’t have to wait long before he was back on his favorite mode of transit. He was soon connected with the Mountain View Public Safety Foundation, which through its Senior Care Program offers assistance to older community members and others in need of help or repairs.
