Developed in 1999, the Direction Home Akron Canton Foundation believes that all older adults, regardless of income, deserve to achieve their long-term care goals. We assist in part through the Care Coordination program, as well as through our dedicated advocacy for public policy change.
In Ohio, 77 out of 88 counties have Senior Service Levies to aid in expanding services to older adults. However, none of the four counties Direction Home Akron Canton serves (Portage, Stark, Summit and Wayne) benefits from the funding of a Senior Service Levy. A large percentage of the Foundation's funds go directly toward advocacy for older adults and their well-being, including Senior Service Levy efforts.
