Our July Jeans BeCause recipient is Senior Services Plus, Inc.
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, Illinois area. These three seniors soon formed the Alton Area Senior Citizens Council which has become the present-day Senior Services Plus, Inc.
From its humble beginnings to the present, the agency has gone through one metamorphosis after another, even emerging bigger, bolder, and stronger than before, even in the face of adversity and difficult economic times. It is conceivably the only senior agency in the state that offers every major funded program that the Illinois Department on Aging has developed, plus several of its own creations under one umbrella agency. 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. Locations served include the Headquarters in Alton, IL. with additional locations in Madison County and St. Clair County, IL.
