What is Senior Services, Inc. of Wichita
Senior Services, Inc. of Wichita is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt social service organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. It is not a government agency. SSI operates a variety of programs designed to improve the lives of older people and their families and to allow older people to live as independently and as productively as possible. Each year, these programs serve approximately 10,000 older residents of Wichita and Sedgwick County, their families and caregivers through the dedication of 52 paid staff and over 500 volunteers. Many of these programs have been operated by Senior Services for decades, while others were more recently inspired by the changing needs of the older community. The agency has a longstanding reputation for caring reliability and for successful collaboration with many other social service agencies, branches of government, religious organizations and the community at large. It is recognized as an effective community resource that has been instrumental in keeping community health care costs down and in reducing the need for nursing home care.
