Through a partnership with Pollen Midwest, we created a case study to learn how Community of Care is providing services, resources and hope for older residents in Cass County, North Dakota.

Excerpt from the Case Study

Providing the services and resources so that rural, older residents can “age in place” — a practice that is more cost-effective than assisted living or long term care facilities — has been at the heart of Community of Care's (CoC) work for the past decade. Today, Community of Care offers a one-stop service center to assist seniors, promote health and well-being, and reduce isolation for rural residents.

build relationships


To identify its niche, Community of Care teamed up with a surprising cast of characters that cut across geography and industry, and even included the organization’s most direct competitors. Together, this eclectic group of people mapped out the gaps Community of Care needed to fill and how it could work harmoniously with similar providers.

commitment to community


When funds get squeezed, Community of Care turns to a resource plentiful in small towns across North Dakota: neighborly hospitality. With the help of volunteers, Community of Care stretches its dollars further and keeps aging adults social, active and mobile.
