About Us: Since 1973 Northeast Senior Services, Inc., formerly North East Senior Citizen Resource Center, has been helping seniors. We are a grassroots organization started by local churches and community organizations and formally incorporated in 1975. Our mission is “Helping Seniors Live Independently with Dignity”.
Many committed volunteers make it possible for us to help seniors with rides, home repairs and other services that help seniors live independently in their homes. Area served: Northeast Minneapolis, Saint Anthony Village, Columbia Heights and New Brighton.
We help seniors through three program areas: NE Senior Home Connection, RIDES, NE Senior Wellness Program.
NE Senior Home Connection: Connects seniors to no/low cost services and programs that help with yard and home maintenance. Help for seniors to complete applications for no/low cost home improvement programs. Information on senior housing and tours of different senior housing options in our community. Help finding moving help.
RIDES: Seniors can receive rides to appointments Monday through Friday. Our volunteer drivers provide over 1,200 door-to-door rides each year. Cost—Riders donate the amount they can afford. Suggested Donation $10.00. Call by noon Thursday for rides starting the next Monday or after.
NE Senior Wellness: We locate and make accessible services that help seniors improve their health and continue to live independently. Information on resources available to help seniors stay in their home. Referral to home health services in the neighborhood. Two monthly foot clinics. A Walking Group at Bottineau Park. Coming winter of 2019, an in-home respite program.
