ZO Responding to seniors during COVID-19

With the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, The Jim Moran Foundation continues to provide emergency response grants for our nonprofit partners in Broward, Duval and Palm Beach counties with more than $6 million awarded since March. Seniors are especially vulnerable and isolated during this unprecedented time, and we are grateful for the many organizations serving older adults with compassion, dignity, commitment and heart.

Daniel Cantor Senior Center, one of the first senior centers in Broward County to re-open its doors during the pandemic, provides a safe, nurturing environment for its clients and caregivers. Meeting rooms were reconfigured according to CDC guidelines, and participant pictures were displayed to help seniors like Santo easily locate their space each day.

Goldie, age 101, was the first to say she was ready to return. I was going nuts at home," she said. "Just to be at the Center again, I know that it will eventually be okay. Twice a week, I have something to look forward to."
