HOW I GOT MY LOVELY GIRLFRIEND BACK AFTER A LONG WHILE


Each time I recall how I got my girlfriend back and better for real, it gladdens my heart with beautiful thoughts of all that transpired all thanks to Dr. Odinani Owelle who did it all with a spell cast I hardly believe in and being that it was the first time I ever tried it out.
How it all happened, I lost a relationship I value with every bit of my life because I cheated on my girlfriend and she caught me, even though I did not get involved with the other girl in question, my girlfriend did not bother considering that because she was angry about me ever conceiving such thought in my heart, she decided to give up a long time relationship for just that. The quarrel lingered for quite sometime until I can across a post that looks more like a testimony online and thought of giving it a trial of which I am now the one testifying of the goodness and awesome help I got from Dr. Odinani Owelle
In less than three damn days, my girlfriend did return to me and things have being awesome and our relationship has being blazing since then. I really wanna use this testimonial note of mine to reaching to broken homes and relationships to get the same help I did get from this wonderful Doctor. Just reach out to him for any case or troubles. Contact Him on his email address odinanisolutioncentre@gmail.com He is the hope of life, his spell cast is so real.

Johnson Center for Philanthropy Final Report

5/9/2017 1:43pm

The Older Americans Act requires every Agency on Aging to conduct a needs assessment every three years to ensure the provision of funding and services are meeting the needs of the target population. 

In the spring of 2016, the Johnson Center for Philanthropy’s Community Research Institute (CRI) at Grand Valley State University conducted a community needs assessment on behalf of AAAWM. The purpose of this assessment is to help the agency better plan and align program and services to alleviate poverty, promote well-being, and enhance self-sufficiency for older adults within their service areas. The results of the needs assessment are available to view in the final report.

Advocacy Update

3/16/2015 12:00am

How many people do you know that are struggling to stay in their own homes because they need some help with things like preparing meals, getting bathed and dressed, keeping the house clean, or managing medications?  There are two programs, one called the MI Choice Medicaid Waiver and the other called Office of Services to the Aging, that are funded by the state of Michigan and provide assistance with these and other activities.

These programs are scheduled to receive the same amount of money this year as they did last year, which means they will only be able to help the same number of people.  We know that there are MORE people who need services like this, so we are asking the Michigan legislature to provide more money for them.  If you agree that there are many seniors that don’t get any help right now but really need meals and services in their homes, please contact your state Representative and Senator and ask them to increase funding for the MI Choice Medicaid Waiver and for the Office of Services to the Aging. The more people the legislators hear from, the greater the likelihood that they will grant our request.  Every phone call, letter, email, or visit from someone supporting these programs will help.
