State of the Agency Highlights

June 27, 2013 - Paul Downey

Senior Community Centers is closing out Fiscal Year 2012/2013 and we are ready to face any challenges that the new year may bring. As we highlight our milestones and future growth opportunities, I am thankful for the supporters we have welcomed to our family over the past 40+ years.

During our State of the Agency reception, one of our first board members who began her service in 1972, had the chance to meet newly appointed board members. Young professionals who thrive in their roles as board interns shared creative ideas for introducing new friends to the organization. A senior client who is a part of our supportive housing program, showcased his musical talent side-by-side with our Support Services Case Manager. Senior Community Centers is the type of organization that creates lifelong friendships and fosters mutually beneficial relationships for everyone involved. Our success and wide reach in the community is a result of these relationships.

We work together to keep low-income seniors healthy and we defer the need for long-term care by stepping in where this vulnerable population needs us most. With the help of our friends and over 40+ years of experience, Senior Community Centers is able to:

  • Serve more meals to even more seniors
  • Expand case management services in multiple languages
  • Add transitional housing units to our homeless prevention program
  • Offer new and exciting community education classes
  • Invest in pilot programs to virtually connect home-bound clients

If you would like to become a part of this outstanding family that has so much to offer, please choose your level of involvement from Senior Community Centers’  How To Help list or consider becoming a volunteer.

Fran Robinson Family Gives “Food from the Heart”

December 27, 2011 - Paul Downey

Today is the Fran Robinson Family of the Day at Senior Community Centers. Fran’s daughter Gail and son-in-law Jeffrey Donahue, want to honor their mother by making a $1,000 contribution to SCC and be the sponsors of the 1,800 meals that we served today. They chose December 27, as the Fran Robinson day because their lovely mother is in town and they all came down to serve meals to our seniors as a family.

“Her energy and zest for life have gone to teaching us all many things as a mother. She always encouraged us to look on the good side of things and persevere and instilled in all of us the importance of being charitable and always helping others.” says Gail.

Food from the Heart program at SCC was created to give families and groups of friends and colleagues, a way to express their philanthropy through the support of deserving San Diegans. We thank Fran and her lovely family for making a difference and adopting our cause as the Family of the Day. Today there are 1,800 more full stomachs and smiling faces. Thank you!
