Outreach Programs 

The Woburn Senior Center Outreach Department, along with Woburn Fire Prevention Services have been working together to provide Woburn Seniors with free CO2/Smoke alarm installations in their homes. This program is graciously funded by the Woburn Rotary Club, through a grant from the Cummings Foundation. Any Woburn Senior can call the Outreach Department here at the center and request an appointment to have their smoke alarms checked and replaced if needed.

The WSC Outreach Dept has partnered with The Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA), to provide on-site assistance with SNAP applications for seniors. DTA is the organization that issues food assistance benefits for Massachusetts. Meg can assist you with checking your eligibility, filling out the application, gathering and submitting your verification documents as well as case maintenance. If you are interested in checking your eligibility give Meg a call, or stop by the Outreach office. The eligibility screen takes about 10 minutes.  You will need to know your current income, and expenses and be willing to share that information with DTA to complete the application.

Updates from Minuteman Senior Services:

Each year thousands of Medicare beneficiaries reach a gap in their Medicare prescription drug plan that is often referred to as the “donut hole”. If you reach that gap, you will see your prescription drug costs increase dramatically! Don’t let this happen to you. Prescription Advantage can help. Prescription Advantage is a state-sponsored program that supplements your Medicare drug plan to fill the gap. For more information about Prescription Advantage, call MassOptions at 1-800-243-4636, Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, or visit prescriptionadvantagema.org.
