Your Donation Improves Seniors’ Lives
Last year Senior Services Associates, Inc. served over 28,000 seniors in Kane, Kendall and McHenry Counties in northeastern Illinois. In many instances, Senior Services was the only place they could turn for help or advice, and in many ways, Senior Services became their family. All too frequently, these seniors faced an emergency when they didn’t have money for necessities like food, medicine, transportation for medical treatments, or a utility bill, but Senior Services always found a way to help them thru the crisis.
Meeting the needs of our seniors in the years ahead will be challenging. While the senior demographic is exploding in size, funding resources have remained stagnant or in some cases been drastically reduced. We are seeing a growing number of frail adults with increasingly complex issues that they and their caregiving families struggle with daily. Your donations are needed now more than ever.
Senior Services Associates, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Personal information, including mailing addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses and donor history is not accessible to, shared with or sold to any other organization.
