Volunteers of America

This non-profit organization focuses on helping seniors across the country live healthy and independent lives. They provide everything from senior centers to referrals for programs like Meals On Wheels, transportation and companion services.

Feeding America

This organization provides food to those in need. Not only do they have mobile and drive-thru pantries, but they also participate in a number of senior based food programs around the country.

Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program

This remarkable program exists to provide healthy, locally grown produce, honey and herbs to low-income households.


This one-stop shop is a place where senior citizens can connect with benefits from healthcare to food, housing and utilities. It connects seniors by their zip code.

Dental Lifeline Network

This nonprofit's mission is to ensure that seniors get the dental care that they need without emptying their savings. They provide their own network of dentists as well as financial assistance for procedures.
