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 and other services that help seniors live independently in their homes.  Area served: Northeast Minneapolis, Saint Anthony Village,  Columbia Heights and New Brighton.

NE Seniors assists seniors in three program areas: RIDES, NE Senior Wellness, NE Senior Home Connection.  

RIDES:  NE Seniors is committed to increase the capacity to provide rides to seniors.  Along with its current rides program which is curb-to-curb it is starting a new program to not only increase the number of volunteer drivers, but to add companions for riders who need a little extra help, so providing door-to-door service. 

AmeriCorps Senior Demonstration Project at Northeast Senior Services: A new opportunity for engaging seniors, age 55+ to serve as volunteer drivers, trained companions who escort seniors from door-to-door, and individuals who maintain phone contact with riders.    

NE Senior Wellness: Keeps seniors connected to other seniors and the community.

NE Senior Living Newsletter - Informs seniors, many of whom are not internet connected, about resources for seniors.  Even the local news, no longer shows phone numbers on the screen, but instead refers viewers to its website. This 12 page newsletter, filled with information about resources for seniors, arrives via U.S. mail four times per year.  Reaches over 1,000 seniors and 150 people who are helping seniors.

A Bit of Fun - a weekly time for seniors to gather via the technology they are familiar with (landline, cell phone, computer).  A social experience with trivia, riddles, games with prizes.  Always looking for new participants. Meets Tuesday, 1-2 PM.

Information and Referral - Assistance to seniors, family, friends, neighbors who call looking for resources to help a senior. Connects with over 1,000 people each year.  Lists of local food resources, transportation programs, senior housing communities and other common needs for seniors.

NE Home Connection - assists seniors in accessing information and services they need to continue living in the home of their choice

Apartments - for seniors looking for a new apartment-type home, three times per year we provide housing tours to see what different types (apartment market rate, apartment subsidized, assisted living, condos/cooperatives) of senior housing look like and to learn the important questions to ask for different types of housing.  Also a Housing Guide which explains different types of housing, fact sheets on types of below market rate/subsidized housing, individually tailored lists of senior housing by type and zip code.   Assistance in completing applications. 

Homeowners - Assistance in finding help for repairs and improvements.  Consultations on local resources. Help completing applications and providing any required pictures. Volunteers to help with some chores. Assistance in scheduling appointments online.

You are important to our ability to continue to help seniors. You donation will make a difference to Northeast Senior Services, Inc. and the seniors in our community.

We could sure use your help at this time.
