January 28, 2022 — The Lincoln Hills Foundation is pleased to announce that it has awarded a special grant in the amount of $50,000 to The Salt Mine. New California regulations made it necessary for The Salt Mine to retire their current vehicle and purchase one that is in compliance with the state laws that went into effect at the beginning of 2022.
In 2002, Del Webb Corporation provided $5000 in startup funds to establish the Lincoln Hills Foundation (LHF) to provide support for residents who experienced challenges as they aged in place. Thus began the collaboration between the SCLH Community Association and the Lincoln Hills Foundation that has continued for the past 20 years and will continue long into our future.
The purpose of the Foundation was to “receive donations and generate funds for the support of programs which meet the physical, educational and/or social needs of the senior residents of Sun City Lincoln Hills.” In 2007, the LHF board expanded the support of seniors to include “the surrounding community of Lincoln.” The LHF is a 501(c)3 public benefit nonprofit corporation, operated and managed 100% by volunteers. As a charity organization, donors know that every dollar raised as a donation is used to support its programs through grants.
The Lincoln Hills Foundation (LHF) funds solutions and programs that enhance the quality of life for the senior residents of the Lincoln community. The LHF, an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Lincoln Hills that designates every donation dollar to grants for programs and services, has been focused on the well-being of seniors since 2001. Currently, four of our programs are focused on enhancing the safety of our senior residents.
The LHF was one of the initial funders for Project Lifesaver which began in June 2021 through the Lincoln Police Department (LPD). Project Lifesaver is an international search and rescue program designed to locate wandering, missing persons diagnosed with Cognitive Disorders and return them safely to their caregivers.
The Lincoln Hills Foundation is pleased to respond to requests identified during our needs assessment by starting a transportation assistance pilot program. Utilizing the Dial-A-Ride shared-ride service program, seniors* and individuals with disabilities are able to arrange transportation within the limits of the City of Lincoln at a reduced cost.
This service can be used for medical appointments, shopping, meetings, recreation, visiting, and much more.
A 20 RIDE SENIOR PACKET will cost $10 instead of the usual cost of $21.25 due to a grant funded by the Lincoln Hills Foundation.
CALL 916-543-8436 FOR INFORMATION OR TO PURCHASE THE 20 RIDE PACKET.
Appointments can be made 2 weeks prior to your trip. First come first served. Appointments may be available up to a few days before the need but to be sure, schedule early.
Riders will receive a pick-up time when they make their reservation and will indicate where the bus is to pick them up. The Dial-A-Ride bus can arrive 15 minutes before or after the reservation time.
Passengers must be ready and waiting for the bus. The bus will wait no more than 3 minutes for you to board.
