For more than 30 years Senior Services North Fulton has been at the forefront of efforts to eliminate senior hunger and provide additional care and support to the region’s growing population of older adults.
In addition to our Meals on Wheels program, we provide transportation to medical appointments and “quality of life trips” for home bound seniors, and we operate 7 senior centers that enrich the lives of hundreds of local seniors each week.
Our agency is a resource for all senior-related care and support needs in the community.
Caring for the senior population in Fulton County is a community effort! In addition to state funding, we are supported by individual donors, local companies, civic groups, and more than 500 volunteers.
We are proud of our community partners and the contributions they make to improve the lives of older adults.
Investing in nonprofits like Senior Services North Fulton impacts the quality of life for everyone in the community.

Lifespan has been building community since it first began in 1981.
All of the congregations who joined together to create Lifespan were interested in providing opportunities for older adults to grow, learn and share knowledge.
The primary issue of that time was to assure elders that retirement could be stimulating and rewarding, giving them the chance to support each other, teach each other and grow into a community.
That vision continues today and we still see Lifespan as our community.
But wow, how things have changed!
The community around us is different, we are confronted by new opportunities and challenges, and there are more of us who are considered older adults than ever in our history.
Lifespan today continues to build communities – communities that welcome us as we age.
What does that mean specifically here at Lifespan?
We live in a city where transportation continues to be one of the most significant challenges for older adults.
So, Lifespan is committing resources to grow our Medical Escort Transportation Program (MET).
The strategy is to build community exactly where we find it, like the MET Neighborhoods we keep talking about.
Get a group of 3 to 5 folks together who are willing to be volunteer drivers and provide an opportunity for the older adults in that community to get to their doctor appointments even though they can no longer drive themselves.
That is a community that welcomes us as we age.
We live in a society where often age isn’t seen as a sign of wisdom, but as a detriment.
So we continue to create an educational program, Lifespan Academy, that values the knowledge of our elders.
It’s an educational community that doesn’t see grey hair as a negative, is willing to wait until you complete your thought, and spends more time looking at each other rather than looking at our devices.
But don’t get us wrong, we also learn how to use those devices in our technology classes—classes that teach technology with patience and repetition. That is a community that welcomes us as we age.

Senior Citizens, Inc. (SCI), a 501c(3) nonprofit organization, began in 1959 with the vision of one man, Harley C. (Nippy) Morrison.
Mr. Morrison, then an executive at Union Camp, noticed that many of his older acquaintances could no longer provide adequate nutrition for themselves.
To meet that need, each week, he and several friends would pack bags of pre-made lunches for once-a-week delivery to 13 seniors throughout the community. From that humble beginning grew a private nonprofit organization with the mission of helping people age successfully.
To accomplish its mission, Senior Citizens, Inc. provides a variety of services that meet physical, intellectual, and social needs.
Most clients begin with concierge assistance, designed to provide information and help older adults and their families navigate programs or services that might meet their needs.
Other programs include home-delivered meals, which currently provide 1,800 seniors each day with hot, nutritious lunches; transportation services to take seniors wherever they wish to go; personal assistance in the home; and companionship and employment opportunities through the Senior Companion program. SCI also operates Adult Day Health Centersthat serve frail seniors.
