Senior Network Service

Organization Mission

Senior Network Services provides senior citizens and persons with disabilities with information, guidance and assistance in coordinating existing resources to promote independence and the highest quality of life.

The Big Idea 2022:
The Anti-COVID Loneliness Project

Senior Network Services engages with seniors and those with disabilities in Santa Cruz County who are experiencing extreme loneliness and isolation that COVID has caused, which is acute among these populations and has dramatically exacerbated feelings of loneliness.

The holiday season has a multiplier effect. Therefore, Senior Network Service will, if funded, launch a program designed specifically to ensure that the residents we serve are regularly contacted and engaged in conversation.

Knowing that someone cares, engaging in intellectual stimulation and having something to look forward to — these can make a huge difference to a senior or person with a disabilities and have an extremely positive effect on their well-being.

I'm hopeless without the help of Senior Network Services. Sometimes I don't talk to anyone for several days and when they call just to check on me it relieves a lot of fear.
