Positive Maturity, Inc.
Enhancing the lives of older adults through social services and civic engagement.
Since 1972 Positive Maturity, Inc. has been a proud partner of United Way of Central Alabama and sponsor for the Corporation for National and Community Service serving adults 50 and older in the Blount, Jefferson, Shelby, and Walker County areas.
Positive Maturity offers three volunteer programs that each serve adults 55 and older; the RSVP Program, Senior Companion Program, and the Foster Grandparent Program. Each program meets the needs and desires of both the volunteer and community. In addition, Positive Maturity has three other programs that supports the aging community and their families. AWARE, an employment program, that assists adults 50 and older who are unemployed or underemployed with one on one job counseling and job readiness skills. Shepherd Center East, a senior center in the Eastlake Community, that provides numerous activities and educational opportunities for adults 50 and older and serves as a nutrition site for adults 60 and older Monday-Friday. Finally, all program participants and their families are offered case management services through our Geriatric Social Service Department who also serves as a community information and referral resources. Check out each program page for more details.
In recognition of the 2016 September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance, The Foster Grandparent, Senior Companion, and Retired and Senior Volunteer Programs of Positive Maturity Inc. provided a free breakfast to military, fire, and police service men and women.
We thank these wonderful individuals for their dedication to our country and communities!
