Partners In Care, Inc., a 501c3 community nonprofit, was founded in Anne Arundel County in 1993. PIC helps older and disabled adults remain independent in their own homes and builds a sense of community around older adults. PIC has earned local, state, and federal recognition for its innovative programs which use a time-banking or service-exchange concept to engage people to help each other. Transportation and handyman repairs are the primary services provided by the organization. In the last year, an average of more than 100 rides per week have been provided by the organization’s volunteer members to help people without private or public transportation options, to their medical appointments to grocery stores, and to run errands.
Partners In Care, which has grown to include 2600 members, will begin celebrating its 15th year of service to the community with a kick-off picnic at the Atlantic Marina on Knollview Road in Pasadena on September 14th. To become a volunteer member of PIC or support its programs in the community, please call Anne Myers at 410-303-3003 or Joyce Cavey at 410-544-4800.
