About
The Supporters of the Dennis Council on Aging (The Supporters) is a non-profit organization comprised of volunteers who raise funds to exclusively support the many beneficial programs available to Dennis seniors through the Dennis Senior Center.  By sponsoring fund raising events, formulating grant requests and appealing to local businesses and residents, The Supporters contribute to the enrichment of the lives of Dennis seniors.

The Need        
There are hundreds of seniors living in Dennis that have no family support and limited financial resources to help them deal with the complexities and uncertainty of aging.  Few of them have cars or are physically able to use public transportation.  These people – our neighbors – depend on the services provided by the Dennis Council on Aging & Senior Center.

And with no operating budget currently available through the Town of Dennis to finance and promote these services, The Supporters’ primary goal is to provide monies to ensure that these Dennis seniors gain access to the existing transportation, educational and recreational programs now available at the Dennis Senior Center.  

Some Successes
The Dennis Senior Center offers the excellent Golden Age Adult Day Care Program which provides a safe environment where Dennis seniors can temporarily leave their solitary lives and enjoy the company of others.  The Supporters have provided large, raised planters allowing seniors to tend their own gardens; funding for additional transportation services and tickets for local museum trips; covered the $40/day cost for a senior in need; purchased a life-like, robotic cat that serves as a calming influence.
