Fall River Home Care Service Provider Pledges Continued Donations for Every Member Served

Moving forward Mass Care Link will be doing even more to help families in Fall River and beyond. The Bay state-based adult foster homecare service provider already helps Massachusetts residents receive the money and support they need to care for loved ones at home. Now with each additional member enrolled, Mass Care Link will donate the equivalent of 100 meals to nationwide hunger-relief organization Feeding America.

With ten years providing payment and support for adult foster care recipients and their caregivers, Mass Care Link was looking for a way to expand on their mission. “By supporting residents looking to care for their loved ones at home, Mass Care Link has always worked to keep families together,” explains Mass Care Link Chief Executive Officer, Tara Araujo. “We are partnering with Feeding America to make sure our neighbors can stay safe and healthy at home thanks to their nationwide network of foodbanks and meal delivery services.”

Mass Care Link has donated the equivalent of 1,000 meals to Feeding America so far. Their goal for the year is 10,000 meals total. As they continue to expand their mission of helping families, Mass Care Link remains dedicated to supporting home-care providers looking after their loved ones with resources, nursing services, and access to financial assistance.

“We come from the communities we care for and we have all seen the impact that food insecurity can have on the health of fellow Massachusetts residents,” continues Araujo. “We look forward to helping Feed America with the fight against hunger.”
