Senior Outreach Service

The Senior Outreach Service program began in 2009 and provides friendship and support for residents of several Kansas City area senior adult residential care facilities. Services were expanded to home-bound seniors who are able to continue to live in their own homes but require additional help such as food, paper goods and personal hygiene products. 
Our volunteers are matched as senior pals to residents of nursing homes across the northland to provide, sending greeting cards on holidays and birthdays to provide a little extra cheer.   Entertainment and educational programs are also provided to help enhance the lives of residents at these facilities.  Paper product collection drives help to provide essential items for seniors in our area who might otherwise go without basic necessities. In times of great need in our community, our Senior Outreach Service program has stepped up to address food insecurity among our senior citizens as well. 
1,093 seniors were served during 2021-2022 through our Senior Service Outreach program.
