Dozens of local organizations will be participating on May 6th in Placer County's Big Day of Giving. Each day we will be featuring one of the many participating organizations. Follow our daily series highlighting these great local organizations.
Seniors First Inc.
In a perfect world, every senior would have enough to eat, a safe place to live, access to community resources and transportation options. Unfortunately, today's world is far from perfect.
Our mission to provide programs and services that help keep Placer County seniors safe, in their homes and independent for as long as possible.
The purpose of our programs is to ensure that every Placer County senior has access to services that assist them in retaining one of the things they hold most dear - their independence. Unfortunately, our country is filled with many seniors who are forced to ask themselves "Who can help?" or "Who can I trust?" Together we can be the answer!
Seniors First is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving the seniors of Placer County since 1997. In 2006, Seniors First merged with another non-profit 501(c)(3) senior services agency that had been providing services since 1971. As our name suggests, our target population is seniors, most of whom are low-income with limited physical abilities, however, several of our programs service the disabled, homeless and at-risk families with children.
Seniors First has over 50 dedicated employees and over 400 community-spirited volunteers that support our mission and, most importantly, Placer County's elderly and disabled persons. All of our programs and services are donation-based and provided at no-cost to our clients.
The programs we provide are: Senior Nutrition Program (Meals on Wheels and Congregate Sites); Transportation Program (Door-to-Door Rides and Health Express); Home Modification and Safety Repair Program; SeniorLink (Information and Assistance); Friendly Visitor Program; Assisted Living Placement Program and Volunteer Opportunities.
