MEOC is dedicated to helping our community neighbors living in Southwest Virginia, young and old. If you need assistance, help may just be a phone call away.
Our Guiding Principle
MEOC offerings are guided by an old African Proverb that states: ``Let us take care of the children, for they have a long way to go. Let us take care of the elders for they have come a long way. Let us take care of those in between for they are doing the work.``
We serve clients of all ages, from children and families to older adults in need of services to help them remain in their homes as long as possible. If you are in need of services ranging from care coordination for older adults to public transportation, we have a program that can help.
