Kay Adult Center Moving Forward

As the members of CSUMC and the population in general age, there is a growing need for assistance in their daily care.  One option is an adult day program like the Kay Center.

In June of 2012 the Kay Center Board contracted with the Knoxville Leadership Foundation as facilitator.  The goal being to evaluate the Kay Center ministry and to set forth a plan for the coming years.  The planning was divided into four key areas; Programming, Awareness, Board Development and Operations.  As this year progresses you will hear more about the progress and you will be able to refer Kay Center services to the families and friends of those in need.

For Kay Center participants the ministry provides meals, activities and camaraderie.  For the caregivers the center provides a respite so they can carry on their day-to-day activities whether it is continuing employment, taking care of daily errands like grocery shopping, banking, etc…, or just some time for themselves.

As members of Church Street United Methodist Church we want to hear from you.  How can the Kay Center better serve our members and the community?
