The late Senator Claude Pepper, a beloved public servant who tirelessly championed causes on behalf of the elderly is credited with giving us the Older Americans Act of 1965. On May 16, 2019, United HomeCare will proudly present the Claude Pepper Awards Dinner in his memory. “This signature legislation helps older Americans to age with dignity in the comfort of their homes with the care and support services they need and deserve”, says Carlos Martinez, President & CEO of United HomeCare in Miami. It is still true today that to have quality of life in one’s later years often requires a helping hand, frequently more than family members can provide physically or financially.
Yet, according to The Giving USA Foundation, there are few organizations serving Americans 65 or older—a population that is growing and estimated to be 98.2 million by 2060. United HomeCare® has served thousands of older adults in Miami-Dade and Monroe County since 1973 with the sole mission of providing that helping hand.
To continue Claude Pepper’s legacy, United HomeCare annually recognizes individuals and corporations who have demonstrated leadership and compassion for the elderly and disabled and inspired others through their actions. Through their generosity of treasure, time and talent, South Florida is a better place for us all. Please join us in congratulating the 2019 Claude Pepper Award Honorees!
