Once a popular local supermarket, the Hawkins building was donated to the Area Agency on Aging Foundation in 2011 by Mr. Earl "Otis" Hawkins. The Foundation owns and manages what is now Hawkins Corner, and supports the missions of the nonprofit agencies that operate within. The Foundation provides these agencies with the opportunity to share resources, and to more efficiently help consumers address their needs. Hawkins Corner is truly becoming a community resource, where consumers can connect with the services they need to remain safe and healthy in their home.
Hawkins Corner and the Foundation are the result of tremendous community support. As the benefits of this project begin to be realized, additional opportunities to serve the community continue to arise. The Foundation continues to depend on community support to implement new ideas and to find innovative ways to reach and serve those in need.
In addition to AAA, the following nonprofits are also located at Hawkins Corner:
