Senior Support Services

EVCSFB offers many services and programs for our elderly and disabled. Our goal is to enhance the health,

quality of life, social well-being of our senior citizens by providing access to resources, health care,

social services, fitness, food, clothing, as well as opportunities for education, recreation and involvement

in the community. By doing so we are providing support for elderly to remain living in their homes independently.
