Community Partners

Senior Community Services partners with other organizations to provide services to seniors.

The vision of Senior Community Services is to mobilize communities to reimagine aging. We could not make this possible without our partners. Together, we deliver innovative and impactful supports that enhance the lives of older adults and the family, friends and neighbors that care for them.

Foundations

“Senior Community Services’ application was unique.  Not only did it address the direct needs of seniors, but also recognized the importance of addressing the needs of their caregivers. In discussions with Deb Taylor and her staff, it quickly became clear that they were interested in a true partnership with the Foundation – a critical factor given our mission, Partnering to Build Healthy Lives.”
~ Libby Lincoln, Program Officer, Park Nicollet Foundation.
