Checks & Balance

Ursuline Support Services’ Checks and Balance Program, sponsored by the Allegheny County Area Agency on Aging, assists low-income seniors and disabled adults who have difficulty with their financial affairs and have problems maintaining their finances. This program matches trained volunteers with individuals that need help budgeting and assuring their bills are paid on time. The volunteers prepare bills for payment, assist with checking writing and balance checkbooks. This dedicated core of volunteers provides a valuable service to seniors in need of financial assistance, as well as much needed companionship on an ongoing basis.

For more information on Checks and Balance contact us at 412-224-4700.

Cart to Heart

The Cart to Heart volunteer shopping service enables homebound seniors and disabled adults to receive needed groceries on a regular schedule. The program matches local people who are in need of a grocery delivery service with volunteers who want to make a difference in the life of a neighbor. This service assists individuals throughout Allegheny County, and the program is always seeking interested volunteers to shop for qualifying recipients.

Please contact us at 412-224-4700 for more information on becoming a volunteer shopper or a participant in the service.

Senior Reassurance

Senior Reassurance Program matches a volunteer caller with a senior who resides alone, providing a brief daily call to check on a senior’s general well-being. These contacts also offer a much-needed respite from the isolation many seniors experience when they live alone. Calls are prearranged and can provide emergency contact if necessary.
