January - March 2019

Serving Our Seniors is grateful for the generous philanthropic support of the community, which has allowed us to offer services and programs enabling older adults in Erie County to remain living healthy and independently in their homes since 1996. Listed here in our Report to the Community are statistics related to the services we provided in 2018. Please remember that these numbers represent “real people,” and for us, “really SPECIAL people”— your family members, neighbors, friends, and you, who may have received our services. The interaction we have with our seniors is the best part of every day. It is truly an honor and a privilege to work on behalf of Erie County residents, age 60+, and we look forward to another healthy and happy year with all of you! Best regards, Sue Greetings, and welcome to 2019!
