Providing a delicious meal and warm smile to those who gave so much for all of us fills my heart and soul! I truly cherish the opportunity to feed our seniors every day!
Kaela Anderson – Lead Cook at Nixa Senior Center
At Senior Foundation of the Ozarks, we are building a solid foundation for seniors, senior centers, and caregivers in Southwest Missouri.
The Ozarks is a great place to live because of the hard work and dedication of those who came before us. Senior citizens created the communities we live in. We believe their talents, wisdom, and expertise should be encouraged, not diminished.
A Senior Center is more than a building. It is a place where our neighbors eat together, explore benefits and services, volunteer, and make lasting connections. By supporting and awarding grants to our local senior centers, we are ensuring that no matter where you live, whether urban or rural, you have a place to go for help and hope.
You read Sam’s Story. His hope awakened because of the lasting bonds he made at the Senior Center. There are many seniors out there just like him. They find themselves alone and in need of something more. Local senior centers provide that sense of place and purpose… they help seniors create new chapters in their lives.
We think the work the Senior Centers do is indispensable and we are proud to support them.
