Arden Courts Fort Myers Community Outreach for Lee County Homeless Coalition this coming week

Good Afternoon Healthcare and Senior Service’s Colleagues!  I hope you are all having an Amazing Friday !

During National Assisted Living Week, the Associates, Residents and Families will be organizing  a very special community outreach project for Lee County Homeless Coalition.

I had a conversation with Therese at the Lee County Homeless Coalition in regards to Arden Courts of Fort Myers Community Outreach Project, during National Assisted Living Week. Therese was thrilled that we are doing this. The largest percent of homeless in Lee County are over the age of 65 and many are veterans. They desperately need our help.

Today, I am reaching out to all of you, asking if you could assist our community in this project.

On September 16th,2021- Our Residents and Associates will be putting together Hygiene Kits for our homeless.
