When Barbara Huston took a look at the dilapidated Pasadena building that had been offered as new offices to the nonprofit organization she heads, she was taken aback. "It was very dark, and there was a lot of mold. When I walked through, the carpet — it was like walking through a golf green after it rained. " recalled the chief executive officer of Partners In Care, a 19-year-old agency devoted to helping senior citizens remain in their own homes. "I thought, 'Oh, my God,'" That was last year.

Isaac Brown no longer drives, has trouble walking short distances and could barely carry a bag of groceries from the market to his third-floor apartment in East Baltimore even if he wanted to. So the 89-year-old depends on Meals on Wheels, a popular charitable service, to bring him two meals a day - one hot, one cold - to get him through the week. "The food is fine," said Brown on a recent day, casually regarding the plastic trays of pasta and vegetables and other healthful choices in front of him. But it's the volunteers who deliver the meals Brown likes most.

It has been years since anyone has seen the walls in the back of Partners in Care's thrift store. Clothes, jewelry and shoes were stacked in boxes because there was no place to display them. The nonprofit's store, called the Boutique, had the best kind of problem: It no longer had enough room for all of its donations. This week, the organization, which matches volunteers to elderly residents who need help with home repairs and transportation, will move to a much larger site two miles up Route 2 from its old location in Severna Park.

It was the end of the afternoon at Partners in Care in Severna Park, where a dozen Japanese social workers and business people were learning about its innovative program that allows seniors to borrow and "bank" services. Clad in navy blue and black suits, the nearly all-male delegation peppered the staff with questions on how to replicate the program in Japan. What broke the ice was the visit next door to the nonprofit agency's thrift store, run by senior volunteers. The delegation head donned a $24 brown leather jacket and an $8 cowboy hat. His tanned face stretched into a broad grin, Nagakatsu Omatsu drew laughter and headed to the cashier.

I commend the writer for capturing the scope and the heart of our endeavors, and hope to clarify one aspect of the program. Although members of the program help each other daily with transportation, handyman repairs, errands, and other neighborly tasks, assistance with transportation is certainly the most requested service.

By lending a hand with occasional tasks and errands, Severna Park-based Partners in Care is making it possible for elderly and disabled adults to maintain their independence and remain where they want to be - in their own homes. The nonprofit organization, which has its headquarters on Ritchie Highway, has more than 1,800 volunteers. Tasks include fixing leaky faucets, climbing ladders, changing light bulbs, doing yardwork and driving to doctors' offices and grocery stores. Partners in Care was the brainchild of Maureen Cavaiola and Sandy Jackson, who hold master's degrees in gerontology from the College of Notre Dame in Baltimore, and Barbara Huston, who holds a master's degree in health care administration from the University of Maryland, University College.
