Senior Citizens Services
Services provided for senior citizens include nutrition education, diabetes self-management skills, wellness seminars, stretch band exercises, light hand weight lifting, bicycling, walking, prevention screenings and other recreational activities. These services are provided by Shiloh’s staff in collaboration with Augusta State University, Paine College, and Chi Eta Psi Nursing Sorority.
Seniors receive a hot, nutritious meal 3x weekly. Shiloh is a main source of social contact for the majority of participants. At least 90% of participants attend 5 days per week. For FY 2011, Shiloh served 8,736 meals to senior citizens (unduplicated).
Shiloh serves as a food pantry through a collaborative project with Golden Harvest Food Bank. For FY 2011, Shiloh distributed over 300 bags of food each month.
Project Y.E.S. (Youth Exemplifying Success)
Shiloh has provided intergenerational summer programming for youth since 1977. In 2007, the program was expanded to provide year-round services to meet the expanded needs of students in the inner city. Project Y.E.S. provides year-round tutoring, life-skills, life enrichment and mentoring for middle school and high school students. Students participating in Project Y.E.S. show an improvement in grades after the first report card and maintain passing grades for the remainder of the school year. In 2010, Project Y.E.S. served over 250 students.
