Dear Friends of Search and Care –

Our agency has been helping older community members since 1972, never turning away anyone in need. Despite a rapidly growing census, we always find a way – raising the support to continue offering fee-free, comprehensive supports and services.

Search and Care’s team of dedicated professionals provide an ever-increasing range of expertise including social work/care management, financial oversight, nursing, occupational therapy, computer tech, pet care, homecare, medical chaperoning and intergenerational volunteering. Our nurturing care enables vulnerable older people to continue living  independently in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes.

Uniquely, Search and Care remains nearly 90% privately funded, thanks to loyal, often long-standing foundations, faith, community, and individual donors like you. Once again, in 2019, we were recognized by GuideStar with a “Gold Seal of Transparency,” and Charity Navigator with their highest “four star rating.”

 We are honored to serve our communities and are humbled by your generous support.

 In deepest gratitude,   

Orla Coleman                                                                              Brian C. Kravitz
Board President                                                                          Executive Director
