"It is up to us, the future generations, to ensure no older adult is abused or neglected, to ensure our seniors are safe from frauds and scams, and to ensure we are providing opportunities for our Dallas area seniors to contribute in meaningful ways to the community."

Why do I support
The Senior Source mission?

“My parents taught me by example how important it is to care for older adults.  Therefore I have a special place in my heart for seniors and helping them feel loved, needed and cared for.  The Senior Source is the best place for older adults to get the help they need to thrive in their later years and I am committed to helping make that happen.”
—Kathy Helm, Board Chair

“My parents both needed full time care in the final years of their lives. Through the heart break, we were given hope by the excellent care and love that they received in their final days. Those trying times opened my eyes to the needs of senior citizens and that is when I got involved with The Senior Source.  I’ve seen first hand the difference this organization has made in our community.  The Senior Source is a beacon of hope to thousands who are in need of elderly support or care.”
—George Dunham, 1310 The Ticket SportsRadio Morning Show Host

“My grandfather was one of the original founders of the Senior Source and I am the third generation in my family to have the privilege of serving on the Board of Directors of this wonderful agency.  My grandparents and two great grandmothers were a huge part of my life growing up and I support this agency as a way to honor their memory and the support that they gave to me.  It is my belief that how we treat our older adults is representative of who we are as a society.”
—John Taylor III, Chair-Elect

“Growing up, I watched my mom and dad tirelessly advocate to better the lives of others. They instilled in me that it was our responsibility to help lift others and leave your mark in the community. For me, leaving your mark should start with the generation that has given so much already, our community’s older adults. It’s our job to protect them and support them the same way many have done for us.”
—Cortney M. Nicolato, President and CEO of The Senior Source

“As an Employment Specialist, I hear the devastating stories from seniors who need extra income due to various life decisions. I get to be a kind, sympathetic and compassionate ear. Also, I get to offer suggestions for resources and help them navigate through a difficult age that seems to be rejected and dismissed. But, I have the opportunity to help them to see this is not true and they can find employment.”
—Steve Berning, Employment Specialist

“I get to be the voice for those who can’t speak for themselves.  I get to help those who are unable to help themselves.  I couldn’t imagine any other career.”
—Rosie, Assisted Living Ombudsman

“I care because I believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can for as long as possible.”
—Melanie Calhoun, Senior Companion Program Director
