Mission Statement
Our mission of the Danville-Boyle County Senior Citizens, Inc is to provide information and a range of services, activities, and volunteer opportunities which promote growth, health, friendship and independence for older adults.
Background Statement
The community has depended upon the senior center for nearly four decades as the prime provider of services to seniors 60 and older. The Senior Center was housed in several other locations in Danville, KY before it's current location on Jean Drive.  The goal of the center is to provide seniors a home away from home, a place where they can come and socialize with old friends and meet new friends, a place where they are offered the opportunity of many recreational activities, such as line dancing, square dancing, Duclimer lessons, card groups, bingo, karaoke, fishing, field trips to plays, picnics, etc.  The center also offers the seniors many health promotions options.  Yoga is offered weekly, as well as daily exercises, Walk with Ease class, Healthy Eating for Successful Living in Senior Adults classes, and computers classes offered by the Boyle County Public Library.  Local agencies such as the police department, University of Kentucky Extension Office, and many others visit to give the seniors information about their programs and offer assistance to them, if needed. The seniors feel very safe and happy in their home away from home.  Our Congregate program allows them to have hot nutritious meal in a safe environment, full of friendly faces and fun activities.
The Adult Day Health Care is a place where caregivers can bring their loved ones from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm daily.  These clients establish a daily routine which consist of a nutritious breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.  Other daily activities include exercises developed to meet the needs of each client, Reality and Orientation which helps the clients orient to current events, and puzzles and games to keep their minds sharp.  The have daily games and acitvities coordinated by the Activity Director.  They play games such as ring toss, corn hole, fly swat volley ball, and bingo, as well as many others.  The clients feel safe and secure in their environment and this allows the caregiver to have some respite time.
Clients also receive assistance with staff driving them to go grocery shopping, to and from doctor appointments, the beauty shop, bank, etc.  The goal of our center is to provide continued support to those we serve to allow our Seniors and Clients to live independently in their own homes as long as possible.
Impact Statement
Since the beginning of the current fiscal year, July 2015 and continuing through February 2016 a total of 8,592 meals have been served to Senior Citizens and Adult Day Health Care clients at our facility.  These meals, which adhere to USDA guidelines, are often the primary source of sustenance for the people we serve in Danville and Boyle County.  In addition, 3,263 individual rides were given to escort Senior Citizens to the doctor, pharmacy, grocery, etc.  We have also recently taken over commodity distribution from the local food bank and are delivering all boxes to Senior Citizens in Boyle County who require home delivery. 
Efforts to expand our service demographic are underway, and include reaching out to the local Deaf and Hearing Impaired community, offering new programs for the Active Senior Demographic such as a Hiking Club, and installation of 12-15 raised bed vegetable gardens to provide activity and food for those we serve.
A growth model for our Adult Day Health Care program is currently under development, and ways to expand service offerings for that currently under-served demographic are being explored.
Our center has acquired a Therapy Animal as well.  Beauregard, an English Setter puppy, is currently undergoing training to become a certified Therapy Dog, whose primary job will be to offer affection and attention to our Seniors and Clients.  The proven health benefits of having a pet provided the motivation for getting Beau, and he has already begun bringing smiles and joy to our people.  
As laid out above, our goals include continued expansion and growth of our service offerings.  We employ the theory that the only bad idea is the one left unexplored, so we are always open to a wide variety of programming opportunities to benefit our Seniors, Clients, and Community as a whole. 
Needs Statement Our most pressing need, as is the case with most non-profits, is the provision of financial stability.  While the pie is finite, each organization competes for their own slice with the hope of always getting the biggest piece.  Our expenses lean heavily towards serving meals and personnel costs associated with having appropriate numbers of staff to effectively serve our target demographic.  Further, outcomes management and reporting is somewhat problematic, as quantifying how providing proper nutrition and healthy social interaction relates to overall physical and mental wellness is quite difficult.  That said, through basic interaction with our members one can easily see the impact we have.  Case in point is one Senior we serve who was brought to us by her niece, literally kicking and scream.  Suffering from severe obesity among other health issues, she became accustomed to coming here.  Soon she began to want to come.  Over the past year, she has graduated from being confined to a wheelchair, to a walker, and now a cane.  By coming here and being active and receiving nutritional support, to date she has lost 109 pounds!
CEO/Executive Director Statement

The importance of funding programming for Senior Citizens and adults with special needs who qualify for our Adult Day Health Care program cannot be understated. First and foremost, providing basic supportive care for seniors that includes proper nutrition, social interaction, and basic medical care contributes to the overall health of the individual, which then leads to a healthier community in its entirety.

In serving the number of Senior Citizens at our center, we are providing a safe place for them to gather, and enjoy the fellowship of others through a variety of activities while providing them with a healthy meal in the process. As social beings, we as people benefit from these daily interactions with others. By providing a venue for such activities, the Senior Citizens enjoy a sense of belonging and often gather with a purpose.

Not only do we provide a gathering place for safe activities and warm meals, but we provide transportation to Seniors as well. We pick up many of our members and bring them to the Center, but we also provide trips to the grocery, doctor, and other errands. Without our help many we serve would simply be ignored.

Our Adult Day Health Care service is a wonderful program. We provide daily care for adults who are unable to stay on their own without any form of supervision. This allows those who do live alone the proper nutrition and basic health care they need in order to promote their own healthy lifestyle and independence. It also allows respite for family members who are primary care givers for an adult with special needs. Our facility allows a safe place for their loved one to come and enjoy a meal, social interaction, and other activities while the care giver can go to work, grocery shopping, conduct personal business, etc.

Thank you for believing in what we do. The Danville-Boyle County Senior Citizens Center is a home-away-from-home for many. Our seniors have spent their lives working hard in this community, raising their families here, volunteering here, and donating here. The time has come for them to reap some of the rewards they have most certainly earned. The Senior Citizens in Danville and Boyle County deserve nothing less than the absolute best we can give to them. At the Danville-Boyle County Senior Citizens Center, that is exactly what they get. A society can best be judged by how our children and our elders are treated. We have an opportunity to provide a legacy of which we can be proud. Through our combined efforts, the legacy can continue and this community will certainly be all the better for it.
