The KIT Program is a joint initiative between the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office and the Lenoir County Council on Aging.  This program, which stands for "Keeping in Touch," provides daily well being calls to our golden aged loved ones who may live alone. 

 

  •  Our goal is to assure that our homebound seniors are safe. 

  • Our volunteers will call homebound clients in the morning or afternoon, at a time that is scheduled by the client.

  • The volunteer will assure that the client is safe and well. 

  • If the client needs assistance, the volunteer callers are trained on how to get them assistance. 

  • If the client can not be reached, our volunteers will contact their emergency contact person to alert them they are not answering the phones.

  • If needed, the volunteer will notify the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office to complete a welfare check at the clients residence to assure they are safe and well. 

For many years, the Sheriff's Office had a strong senior call program, but as our program aged, we found that the Council on Aging had a similar program.  Sheriff Ronnie Ingram and Lenoir County Council on Aging Executive Director Betsy Griffin met and agreed to "join forces" working for the betterment of our senior citizens.  From those meetings, the KIT Program began.
