Adult Life Programs is pleased to announce the support of the Catawba County United Way for the amount of $30,000 for year 2022. These dollars allowed Adult Life Programs to provide 600 days of service to elderly citizens who otherwise would not have access to funding for these much needed services.  Overall in 2022 Adult Life Programs served 125 people through 13,682 days of service and 30,615 meals. Thank you Catawba County United Way!
