Help fund programs. Be a part of our vision.

Milestones is dedicated to helping seniors and their caregivers. Won’t you partner with us to help support local programs for seniors living in Appanoose, Clinton, Davis, Des Moines, Henry, Jefferson, Keokuk, Lee, Louisa, Lucas, Mahaska, Monroe, Muscatine, Scott, Van Buren, Wapello and Wayne counties in Iowa?

Anytime is a great time to make a tax-deductible donation. Sponsorship opportunities are also available for both individuals and businesses. Your gift, no matter the size, is greatly appreciated. By making a contribution to Milestones Area Agency on Aging, you will help us continue our work in the community by meeting the known and emerging needs of seniors and family caregivers. A contribution to the Agency supports all of the programs and services we offer and directs funds where the most pressing need is at a given time. Or if you wish, you can designate a program area for your donation.

Another option is planned giving where individuals make a significant contribution to support services for seniors while receiving financial benefits now or in the future. Please contact your estate planner or an attorney for appropriate legal planning when thinking about gifts associated with wills, living trusts, life insurance or appreciated stock.

If you are unable to make an on-line donation, you are welcome to send a check by mail and we will send you a receipt for tax purposes. Our mailing address for donations is Milestones, 623 Pennsylvania Avenue, Ottumwa, IA 52501


Do a lot of good in a small about of time.

Volunteer your time once or more per week.

The senior nutrition program, in all 17 counties, continually looks for volunteers to deliver meals to homebound seniors Monday – Friday, mid morning hours, typically 2-3 hours per day. Some routes are only 2 to 3 days per week while others are 5 days.

You will need a reliable vehicle, maintain a valid driver’s license and auto insurance with the ability to perform proper lifting. Volunteers are not “just” delivering a meal but providing a friendly face and human contact to those who might not necessarily receive one on a daily basis.

Email us at or phone 1-855-410-6222. If you want to deliver in Louisa, Henry, Des Moines or Lee counties ask for Pam at ext. 7503; in Clinton or Scott counties ask for Joni at ext. 7305; in a 10 county area surrounding Ottumwa ask for Pam O’Leary at ext. 7407 and in Muscatine county call Teresa at 563-260-9921
