Helping seniors in poverty live healthy and fulfilling lives.

Who We Are

Our method has earned national recognition as a model for helping seniors remain healthy and independent. We’re the only organization in San Diego, and one of the few in the United States, that provides such a broad base of vital services to vulnerable, low-income older adults.

Who We Serve

More than 85% of our clients live below the Federal Poverty Level and struggle to meet basic needs, living on less than $1,000/month and paying $750 in rent, leaving just a few dollars a day to pay for food, medication, transportation and other expenses.

Serving Seniors is dedicated to providing exceptional care and support services for individuals age 60+ regardless of race, color, religion, sex, marital or civil union status, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, place of birth, ancestry, citizenship, military or veteran status, or disability.
