About UsUrsuline Support Services is a nonprofit, charitable organization that supports those who are vulnerable and in need in our communities, enabling them independence through life’s many transitions. Whether a person in need suffers from abuse, neglect or financial and emotional distress, Ursuline provides the critically needed adult and senior services. More importantly, we provide the support and care that one would expect from family. Our employees are dedicated to the safety, well-being and comfort of their participants.
Ursuline helps individuals experiencing challenges posed by life’s transitions, inspiring hope through protection, education and advocacy.
Through a caring, competent and committed staff and board members and with the help of a team of volunteers, Ursuline’s three main programs—Guardianship, Protective & Supportive Services and Independence Support Services —serve as three pillars of hope. Through these programs, Ursuline helps make decisions for those who can’t themselves, provides protection for those vulnerable to abuse.
With more than 30 years of experience and a strategic spirit of innovation, Ursuline continues to grow and serve in our communities. Ursuline expanded its services to include Cart to Heart volunteer grocery shopping service, Checks and Balance programs and Senior Reassurance daily wellness phone call program for seniors.
