Home Delivered Meals for Local Seniors

Home delivered meals are available weekdays for delivery to qualifying seniors, must be 65 years or older, on a short or long-term basis. Meals are prepared by a local restaurant and are not available in specific dietary restrictions.

The meal cost is based on income. 

A volunteer delivers the meal to the senior's door. If the volunteer does not receive a response at the door at the time of delivery, the senior's emergency contact is notified.

Transportation Keeps Seniors on the Move

Drivers in our lift equipped vans, as well as volunteers driving their own vehicles, provide 'door-through-door' rides to local appointments for seniors 65+ or disabled individuals living in our service area of Carrollton, Farmers Branch, Addison, Coppell and city of Dallas in Denton County.

The area of service extends 5 miles outside the city limits of Carrollton, Farmers Branch, Addison and Coppell. 

Rides are provided: Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The one-way cost is based on income and ranges from $3 to $10. There is no charge for scheduled appointments at Metrocrest Services. 

We appreciate the many volunteers who make a wide range of repairs possible for local seniors.

Live Safely: Minor Home Repairs & Safety Aids

To help seniors live independently and safely in their homes, we provide assistance with minor home repairs and install safety aids, such as grab bars, wheelchair ramps and wireless doorbells. Volunteers provide many of the services under the coordination of our Home Repair Coordinator. Yard cleanup, fence repairs and exterior painting may also be available.

Senior pay for the materials and volunteers install them.
Monthly corporate sponsorships are available during 2017. Call Tracy Eubanks at 972-446-2101.

Food for Seniors through Eat Smart, Live Strong

Any senior may qualify to visit the food pantry to select food. For low-income seniors who qualify to receive monthly People and Nutrition (PAN) commodity food boxes we now provide supplies of fresh vegetables, fruits and other foods through our Eat Smart, Live Strong program. For recipients 60 years & older. 

This expanded service is made possible by generous sponsors. Previous sponsors include Baylor Medical Center at Carrollton, Research Across America, PlainsCapital, and Purdy McGuire.
