ElderNet provides a safety net for older and disabled adults to help them remain in their homes with dignity, and strengthens food and financial security for all community members in need of support.
Older and disabled adults will feel cared for, respected, and connected to our community. Those facing food and financial insecurity will find comfort and resources to meet their basic needs. As a result, no one will feel isolated. ElderNet will continue to be a highly regarded service provider, a place for meaningful volunteer service, and a source of dignity and hope.
Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why ElderNet's Ada Mutch Community Resource Center (AMCRC) works year-round to feed those in our community who are in need. AMCRC is a one-stop-shop with a licensed social worker and a nurse on staff from Bryn Mawr Hospital. All services are free to income-eligible residents of Lower Merion and Narberth.
ElderNet’s licensed social workers assist older and disabled adults with finding solutions to their problems & challenges. Social workers can connect clients to public benefits, make direct referrals to other local agencies & health care providers and act as an ongoing support system to the most vulnerable of our community.
IMPORTANT: Due to the federal government shut-down, February food stamps for all of PA will be issued on Friday January 18th. This is the only benefit payment SNAP recipients will receive for the month of February. Consumers will not receive a payment on their regularly scheduled February payment date and this is not a bonus payment. New food stamp applications will continue to be processed.
Other benefits such as cash, LIHEAP or Medical Assistance will not be affected.
If you are in-need of food, please come to ElderNet's full-choice food pantry. We are open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am-11:45am and 2:00pm-3:45pm. We serve all of Lower Merion Township and Narberth and offer meat, milk, bread, produce, toiletries, and non-perishable items.
If you have any questions, please contact ElderNet at 610-525-0706 to speak with one of our licensed social workers.
