Seven County Senior Federation (SCSF) is a small, independent, member-led nonprofit organization of older adults.
We have been a positive force in the neighborhood since 1975, and we are the last Minnesota senior federation standing – and we’re here to stay! We are a network of older adults in the east-central Minnesota counties of Aitkin, Carlton, Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs and Pine.
We like to say, “The Older You Get, The Smarter We Look!”
Your support keeps us ready for the newest generation of older adults by offering great information and the resources you can rely upon.
SCSF offers community, peace of mind, real people answering the phone when you call. Plus, we give older adults a collective voice to advocate for better choices for the next generations of older adults.
If you're going to get older, you might as well learn from the experienced!
People beat a path to our door for our experienced, helpful explainers: we offer group or one-on-one counseling to explore Medicare and Social Security, screening for program eligibility, referral to useful and money-saving programs like 55+ safe driver courses and AARP Foundation tax-aide appointments. We can untangle seemingly intractable billing issues, find answers, and we can help you access online resources.
For income-eligible Medicare beneficiaries, our Medicare Partners program (formerly “Senior Partners Care”) effectively streamlines charity care at many participating hospitals and clinics statewide.
Our ECHOES newspaper is a member benefit and connection to social events, volunteer openings, discounts and good information.
Our elected board of delegates are older adults who live in and represent one of our seven counties. Would you like to be one of them? Just ask!
The public’s continued support of our very popular One More Time thrift stores keeps our SCSF staff and volunteers working hard for you. Visit One More Time in downtown Isle or downtown Mora when you’re in the mood for discovering really great used stuff at really great prices.
