Jeans BeCause – Senior Services Plus

Senior Services Plus, Inc., was the recipient of our March Jeans BeCause program.  Senior Services Plus, Inc., was established in 1973 after three seniors-Floyd Galliher, Art Steinman and Roy Morrow-realized the need for more senior programs in the Alton area. These three seniors soon formed the Alton Area Senior Citizens Council which, through several metamorphoses, has become the present-day Senior Services Plus, Inc.

Senior Services Plus is the “Leader in Aging” for the St. Louis area.  They are a non-profit 501c United Way agency established to help enrich the lives of older adults through programs and services that encourage independent living.  Their Mission is “to provide opportunities and resources to individuals as they age”.  Programs include: Transportation, Meals on Wheels, Travel, Foster Grandparents and J.B. School of Dance.  Services include:  Home Care, Wellness & Fitness, Information & Assistance, Care Transitions, Events & Activities and School House Grill & Dining.

Locations served include Alton, Godfrey and Belleville, in Illinois, and St. Louis in Missouri.

On Saturday, June 13th, they are hosting Feed the Need Meals on Wheels Benefit Concert featuring Alison Krauss with Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas with special guests The Harman Family Bluegrass Band.  Information on this event can be found by clicking here.
