PORT CHARLOTTE, FL – Today, the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office has announced it’s newest initiative known as the Senior Outreach Program which will create an opportunity for those over 60 years of age, disabled, or living alone with little to no contact with others, a way to engage with the community. Stemming from an abundance of senior referrals, there was an apparent need for a means to connect with seniors.

This program will assist in ensuring the safety and well-being of our senior citizens who may be lonely and in need of assistance.

We are hopeful this program will assist us in connecting with those who are the most difficult to reach, enabling us to deliver helpful resources to enhance the well-being of those enrolled.

Weekly phone calls will be made to those enrolled in the program by volunteers who have been trained by our mental health professional to deliver resources to those in need. We believe this program will be an asset to the community by delivering a friendly voice on the other side of the phone, and preventing unfortunate and preventable situations for seniors.


FIGHT BIG TECH: CONTRIBUTE $$$ TO "HELP HOLD BIG-TECH ACCOUNTABLE"

Big Tech is using a content filtering system for online censorship. Take a few moments and watch our short video about NewsGuard to learn how they control the narrative for the Lamestream Media and help keep you in the dark. NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is 'missing context' or stories their editors deem "not in your best interest" - regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate. They also work with payment processors and ad-networks to cut off revenue streams to publications they rate poorly by their same bias standards. This should be criminal in America. You can bypass this third-world nonsense and help support us by signing up for featured stories by email and get the good stuff delivered right to your inbox.
