History and Background
Born of the merger of two healthy, progressive older adult service agencies CommunitySeniorServ, Inc. is dedicated to serving as an advocate for Orange County's older adults, providing comprehensive services essential to their well-being and independence. Funding our core mission, our annual budget of $12 million allows us to provide vital safety net services to more than 11,000 senior citizens a year.
A thoughtful business decision in 2006 saw the merger of Feedback Foundation and Senior Meals and Services create a new agency with greater capacity, energy, resources, and vision for the sole purpose of meeting the increasingly diverse needs of the elderly population.
Our goal is to ensure sustainability for our programs and meet the growing demand for senior services as the Orange County senior population grows by 75% by 2030. SeniorServ is one of the nation's largest elderly nutrition programs and a respected leader in the national aging network. In the past year, we prepared and served 663,345 nourishing meals to seniors at home and 268,000 at 25 nutrition centers, improving the lives of 10,434 seniors in need.
Community SeniorServ is a nonprofit corporation, was incorporated in 1967 under the laws of the State of California and has been assigned a tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
