Faces of Hunger

Charlotte, Keeping Her Independence

Charlotte is 93 years old and lives alone, but still remains independent, able to care and cook for herself. She was referred to the Mobile Pantry of Long Island Cares by Suffolk County Department of Social Services’ Adult Protection Unit.

Charlotte’s connection with Long Island Cares has increased her socialization with the community and has aided in her continued independence, preventing further adult service interventions. In addition, Charlotte is able to receive nutritious items that can ensure a balanced diet to help keep her healthier longer.
