Outreach Program

Connecting Senior Citizens with County Services


Are you aware of the many services that may be available to you or your loved one throughout Lackawanna County?

Telespond’s Outreach Program has linked thousands of older persons to such vital programs and services as home delivered meals, legal services, Senior Centers, and entitlement programs such as Rent/Property Tax Rebates, PACE, the Fuel Rebate Program, as well as the entire range of existing community based programs and resources.


The Outreach Program consists of an Outreach Worker who canvasses door-to-door in Lackawanna County providing a link between the senior citizens living in the community and existing social services. He/she provides information on available services and benefits, assistance in applying for needed services, and assurances that our senior citizens receive support and assistance when needed.

Outreach is an integral part of Telespond’s overall mission of service to the older population of Lackawanna County, and there is no charge for this service.
