Home-bound residents often depend on delivery of their meals while recovering from an accident or an illness. Here's the story of District resident Tom Quinn who was discharged from the hospital for a hip and ankle fracture. He found it hard to get around and could not maneuver the steps to his apartment. He’s making it work with “Home-Delivered Meals,” a program offered by the D.C. Office on Aging. Tom feels good about people doing something for everyone. He calls it charitable motivation.

Mary says that “volunteer” is her middle name. “I’m a volunteer talk-show host and an advocate for a healthcare program in the District of Columbia and I’m a senior citizen.”  She’s also retired and lives on a fixed income.  When she was in her mid 60s she connected with a SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps) and it made a big difference in her life.   Mary worked with a DC agency that helped her sign up for Social Security and qualify for SNAP.
