What is Project Homecoming?Project Homecoming is offered to Broomfield residents 60 years or older who have been released from any hospital and will be recuperating at their home in Broomfield. Individuals can receive five delivered meals from Broomfield Meals on Wheels at no cost. Cooking is the last thing a recently hospitalized individual needs to worry about during the recovery period at home, and good nutrition is a must for healing after a surgery or illness. Project HOmecoming is generously funded by Senior Resources of Broomfield, Inc.
