COA Centers to Remain Closed, Meals on Wheels to Continue with Weekly Deliveries
Following Governor Whitmer's order to stay in place and stay safe, the COA offices will remain closed, including Enrichment Centers in Sturgis and Three Rivers. All activities and programs will be canceled at both centers. However, the COA will continue to provide Meals on Wheels to homebound seniors once per week and will deliver a week's supply of food at that time. We are doing this to minimize contact between our drivers and our seniors. Our senior citizens are a population that are at higher risk for more severe outcomes from contracting the Coronavirus. Please monitor media sources for the most up to date information on the status of COA services or contact us at 269-279-8083. While our staff will not be in the office we will be checking messages and will get back to everyone who leaves a message as soon as possible. The COA also has a Facebook page - you can find us by typing in SJCCOA.

The COA Advisory Board meeting that was scheduled for Wednesday, March 18 at 1:30pm at our Oaks Enrichment Center in Sturgis was canceled. The next COA Advisory Board meeting is set for Wednesday, April 15 at 1:30 p.m. at our Rivers Enrichment Center in Three Rivers. We are not sure at this time if that meeting will go on as scheduled. Look for an update on this page or on our Facebook page as soon as a decision is made.
Do You Have a Heart for Seniors?
The COA is seeking dedicated in-home caregivers to provide light housekeeping, personal care and respite care to help our seniors stay independent in their own homes. We are seeking services specifically in Mendon and Leonidas areas for Respite care, though many other service opportunities exist throughout the county. Benefits include paid mileage and travel time as well as flexible scheduling and a yearly retention bonus. Please call the COA at (269) 279-8083 and ask to speak to Nicole for more information or stop in to the Three Rivers or Sturgis enrichment centers to fill out an application.
