2019-2020 Highlights

Dear Friends of Senior Services of Alexandria,

This year has been the extremely challenging and also very rewarding in many ways.  SSA’s programs were all growing and serving more older adults than ever when the pandemic hit in March.  Since then, we have focused on delivering essential services with strict health protocols and a commitment to the safety of our clients and volunteers.

Some of the highlights of this year include:

  • In February, SSA delivered 900 meals per week. Now we are delivering 2500 meals per week, with fewer volunteers!
  • We have over 100 clients in our Groceries to Go program
  • Scheduling for DOT reservations has continued uninterrupted
  • We began a virtual version of the Friendly Visitor program
  • This year also saw the beginning of a new weekly e-gram, SSA Connection, that includes information ranging from the practical to the uplifting
  • Our Senior Ambassador program now includes 85 ambassadors who share updates with their communities three times a week.

I am proud to be part of an organization of dedicated staff and Board members who make all this possible.  We are all very grateful to be part of a community that cares for our older adult residents, and we appreciate your support.
