Our Mission & History

Our mission of enhancing the lives of seniors is at the heart of everything we do at Senior Neighbors.

Every year we serve over 4,000 older adults, helping them stay independent through a wide range of essential services and our five Senior Neighbors centers. We promote the well-being of older adults with services that promote self-sufficiency, especially to those with physical, social or economic needs. We’ve been proudly serving seniors in Kent County since 1972.
