Friends of Elder Citizens, Inc.

Who We Are

Friends of Elder Citizens, Inc. (FOEC) is a 501(C)3 nonprofit corporation formed in 1981 as a result of the Older Americans Act.  A motivated group of visionary founders secured and initiated programs making nutrition and socialization accessible for Palacios senior citizens.  FOEC is governed by a board of directors who administer programs through an Executive Director.  Nutrition, transportation, and socialization are some of the services presently offered.  In 1997 Jackson County senior citizens were also added to the umbrella.

What We Do

FOEC's mission is to ensure that no person 60 years of age or older will be isolated or neglected, but remain a productive, independent member of the community.   Our programs now serve over 3000 meals per month through the Palacios Senior Center and the Edna Senior Center. 

We have two transportation centers.  Bay City is the hub for Matagorda County R-Transit and Edna is the hub for Jackson County R-Transit.  R-Transit gives a priority to the elderly and disabled in scheduling transportation to medical appointments, pharmacies, grocery stores, and other shopping needs.
