Our ARCD Senior Assistance Program helps to improve the quality of life for the elderly by helping them remain healthy and continue to be productive members of the rural communities in which they live. 

Our program addresses the needs of Senior citizens in the areas of nutrition, health, fitness and wellness as we also address the detrimental effects of social isolation.  

Our rural communities are aging faster than our general population. Our rural seniors were the ones that put Texas Agriculture on the map and now more than 70% of our farms and ranches are run by those over 65 years of age. Combined with the social isolation of many of the rural communities we serve and the lack of local programs for the aging, the need of Senior assistance in the areas of nutrition, socialization, and wellness in our rural service area has increased, while funding has decreased. All these circumstances have made the ARCD Senior Assistance Program very valuable to the communities we serve. . 

 Alamo RCD has been working directly with the local community volunteers within this program since 2003. Together, we concentrate on increasing our assistance to local Senior citizens through improved social, nutritional, and health services within our service area. 


Our Senior Assistance Program helps to provide activities for Seniors that improve their health and wholeness within our 10 County area. 

 Alamo RCD Senior Assistance Program will provide:
  • Enhanced nutrition through augmentation of nutrition/meals service and distributions from our food pantries.  

  • Improved physical health for Seniors through the facilitation of exercise classes and physical fitness programs, 

  • Improved health and wellness activities such as health screenings, nutritional workshops and demonstrations, service connections through our Lunch-n-Learn Sessions.

  • Improved socialization through activities in art, music, crafts, entertainment and games and gardening programs and a recurring schedule of holiday parties and other community social events. 

  • Encouragement of Senior technology and communication training using the web, internet and social networks, when possible. 

  • Capacity growth by connecting them to senior assistance programs and providing them with a plan of action to improve their access to services into the future.

Our Senior Assistance Program is currently very active at our Pipe Creek/Lakehills location in Bandera County  at Faith Tabernacle Church.

Our Senior Assistance Program in Pipe Creek Texas addresses the needs of Senior citizens in and around the Bandera County Area through increased socialization, nutrition, health and wellness. The COVID-19 Pandemic has limited our use of our location at Faith Tabernacle Church and suspended our Social & Health Events, Art & Exercise Classes and Lunch-n-Learn Sessions through June of 2021 (or longer).

We are now concentrating on our 
Senior Assistance Program 
in the areas of nutrition and online socialization. 

We have activated quickly in February/March 2020 as the COVID-19 Pandemic hit. From May to September we provided Food, online socialization, and financial assistance to our Senior membership. Our economic relief assistance ended in September due to lack of funding. We are now serving our Senior Assistance Members with a program that provides food, personal Hygiene products, online socialization and other pressing needs that are stressing our Seniors during this Pandemic. 

Our plan for our Program is to assist our Senior Families with socialization through consistent email, text and phone communications so that they do not feel so isolated during this crisis. We communicate with our members weekly, sharing prayers, needs and program information. 

We are now providing socialization through our ZOOM Senior Social Club ( hopefully every two weeks) as we meet online and enjoy each others company! 

We are also working closely with other assistance in collaboration with local agencies such as Silver Sage Senior Center (Bandera) and Hill Country Daily Bread Ministries (Boerne) and other local organizations

Our seniors are important to us and we will NOT stop helping as long as 
the FUNDS are there! 

What do our SENIORS NEED?
A. Food. Good nutrition is hard to get for them. 
B. Help in paying nagging bills and other expenses,  
C. Personal Hygiene Products, Depends, Poise
D. Heaters and Fans 

COVID-19 is a major danger to 
their health and well being.

We will notify our members when we are able to assist again with Financial Assistance for items such as rent, utilities, medical bills, medicine copays etc. If you apply now and make a request, you will be placed on a "waiting list" until future funding comes in.

In 2020, our Senior Assistance Program is PROUD to state that we provided multilayered assistance to our Seniors (over age 55) who live in Bandera County and surrounding areas, with the help of our volunteers and collaborating partners. 

We gave them good nutrition, hope and companionship through our Curbside Pantry, our consistent online communications, our volunteer work and individual phone referrals and individualized economic assistance. 

Our loving care of our Seniors came to a total of $157,000
