PARTNER INITIATIVE:

OFA on Wheels!

Sullivan County Office for the Aging and Sullivan 180 are proud to announce the OFA on Wheels!, a mobile resource for Seniors in Sullivan County. Through funding from Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther’s office, Sullivan BOCES was able to retro-fit a school bus with laptops and internet connection to create a mobile classroom. And while school is out for the summer, the bus will be brought to local towns across the County to allow Seniors to get help accessing and signing up for resources and benefits.

The OFA on Wheels! will be manned by Sullivan 180’s Project Intern and local EMT, Samantha Dorn, to help Seniors sign up for Office for the Aging services, register for their COVID-19 vaccine if needed, and receive their SFMNP farmer’s market coupon booklets. Seniors will be able to have their blood pressure checked and complete a pre-diabetes assessment if they would like. Also, every Senior, age 55+, who visits the bus will get a free diabetes prevention tote bag full of gifts from our partners.

Other local organizations who will be joining us on the bus are Action Towards Independence (ATI), Independent Living, and Sullivan County Public Health Services.
