Serving Seniors is a nonprofit organization in San Diego, California, that helps seniors in poverty live healthy and fulfilling lives. Founded in 1970, Serving Seniors helps poor and homeless seniors thrive using an innovative model of whole-person, wraparound support including meals, housing, health and social services, and enrichment.
We work at 15 sites across the county and in the homes of hundreds of homebound seniors. Our flagship Gary & Mary West Senior Wellness Center in downtown San Diego is unlike any other senior center in the nation, providing two floors of coordinated resources including nurses, social workers, housing assistance, activities, a Cyber Café, and access to over 25 collaborative partners including an on-site senior dental center.
Each year, we provide 640,000 meals and coordinated services to 5,000 older adults aged 60 and above, most of them living on less than $1,000 per month. Serving Seniors is the largest provider of meals to seniors in the county, and one of the only organizations in the nation providing such a broad base of services to vulnerable, at-risk older adults.
