Each year, NSCAP distributes gift bags to our most needy senior consumers. Historically, we have been able to deliver approximately 60 gifts! However, we service nearly 150 consumers per week! At least 90%, of which, are income eligible for public benefits and many with little to no family who would otherwise be in a long term nursing facility, if not for the in-home services our program is able to provide.
