MOWHC is focused on one service, providing nutritious meals to those in the Hamilton County community who are not able to provide for themselves. One or two balanced meals, depending on the individual’s need, are delivered Monday through Friday to Hamilton County residents who are enrolled in the meal service. Meals are delivered by compassionate volunteers who provide socialization and conduct a welfare check to observe for any unusual symptoms or signs of distress that may require medical attention or notification of a family member or caregiver. Additionally, volunteers often identify other special needs that clients may have which are referred to other partner social service agencies within the Good Samaritan Network in Hamilton County.
