For nearly 50 years, SSA has provided vital programs and services to seniors in need, fostering their independence and self-sufficiency. Groceries to Go provides free home delivery for individuals who are unable easily to shop for themselves, and Meals on Wheels delivers healthy, fully prepared meals 365 days a year. For seniors who are homebound and socially isolated, a Friendly Visitor program offers year-round weekly visits from trained volunteers. SSA also manages a call center that ensures low-cost, door-to-door transportation service is available for seniors with disabilities. And valuable information is always close at hand: an in-depth Speaker Series offers education on a wide range of topics, from finances to health care accessibility; and Senior Information Centers at public libraries and recreation centers connect individuals to current programs and services. Helping neighbors to age in place, with dignity and grace what a gift.
