Welcome to Generations - We provide information and services to older adults, individuals with disabilities of any age and their caregivers in Daviess, Dubois, Greene, Knox, Martin and Pike counties.

From nutrition to arranging the right in-home services, our job is to connect individuals with the right programs and services to help improve their quality of life. Generations is a program of Vincennes University’s Community Service Division.

Donna Scherle just happened to hear her friend and former classmate Dodie Uhl, our Dubois County AngelWorx Coordinator, on WBDC radio station in Huntingburg talking about our Build*A*Basket project. She called Dodie to see if she thought Generations’ clients might enjoy a monogrammed towel. Of course Dodie said yes and the results were amazing. Donna monogrammed a total of 50 bath towels for Generations’ clients. She donated 15 of the towels herself and all of the thread plus her time. Members of her family (the Mehringer family) donated 35 more towels when she told them about our project. In addition to her awesome monogrammed items, Donna also makes beautiful quilts. Thanks, Donna, for your gifts from the heart.
