City of Upper Arlington, Ohio

STAY UA

The City of Upper Arlington's Fire Division is excited to partner with National Church Residences in a service coordinator program that facilitates keeping older adults and residents with disabilities safely in their homes.

Beginning in early April 2009, the part-time, one-year pilot program has been made possible through funding from the Rev. John R. Glenn Foundation, via National Church Residences. It is believed to be the first program of its kind in the country. The program bridges the gap between services offered by the Fire Division's emergency medical service by connecting residents with the appropriate support services that could help prevent future emergency situations.

In its first year of existence, the program helped link numerous members of our community with resources and services they did not know were available to them, resulting in immediate, cost effective improvements to their quality of life and the ability to remain in their homes.

Effective April 2010, the program is to be established as a sustained community program supported by Upper Arlington City Council, the City of Upper Arlington, and numerous community organizations.
