Ways to Give:


Your support is more critical today than ever before! The aging of America is not just a “seniors” issue and causes a strain on households in San Diego and nationwide. Our dining rooms are filled with seniors 365 days a year and our programs are expanding to better fit the increasing demands for our services. Please join us in providing a safe and welcoming place for seniors to go for a hot meal, see a nurse, socialize with friends and get assistance with any needs they have by making a contribution of $35, $50, $100 or whatever you can afford.

“I was inspired to include Serving Seniors in my estate plan because I feel we need to take care of our seniors in their older years in a dignified and comfortable way.  The mother of one of my good friends lived there, so I experienced through her what a wonderful place it was.  She enjoyed good meals, companionship, and activities among many things, but most importantly felt cared for.”
