The Coastal Bend Community Foundation awarded Nueces County and its Department of Human Services a $10,000 grant to assist County residents who are 60 years of age or older and are experiencing a crisis situation.

These funds will be used not only for help with utilities, rent, or food, but also for aid with other special needs which include prescription medications, medical equipment, propane, small home repairs, heaters, A/C window units, glasses, or minor dental care.
