Help for the Elderly, Disabled

12:13 pm January 31st, 2013

Sherry Hunsaker of the local Human Empowerment Services, a nonprofit that helps with transportation of seniors and the disabled, said she’s been in Kuna for 14 years. “We have a 15-passenger van for medical appointments, social events, the grocery store and bank and to El-Ada for emergency energy assistance and help with Medicare and Medicaid. “ She may be reached at 353-5300.

“Remember us in your budget,” she told Otter. “We have limited grant money, $23,000 from Treasure Valley Transit, a new program, but we’re making a big difference in Kuna.”

ITD Director Brian Hess said his department “will explore options. There’s a lot of need here.”

H&W Director Dick Armstrong offered to “look into any avenues of assistance,” and Greg Seifert of the DOC said he will “send a couple of folks out to talk with Kuna’s Economic Development committee. “Kuna is set up for and needs economic development, a tax base.  We’ll get something going.”
