Company

Our Mission

To provide services and support for seniors to enhance their quality of life and independence in our community.

Our Vision

An inclusive community where all older adults are revered, cared for, and supported to live meaningful and productive lives.

Our History

Senior Services North Fulton was founded in 1991 to provide programs and services for older adults who live in the 6 cities of North Fulton – Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton, Mountain Park, Roswell, and Sandy Springs.  In 2019 we assumed responsibility of three additional senior centers, extending our reach into the city of Atlanta.

Through the generous support of local organizations, individuals, corporations, foundations, and the Fulton County Office of Aging, Senior Services has expanded to meet the greatest needs of area seniors. In addition to our seven senior centers, we offer Meals on Wheels, Meals on Wheels for Pets, transportation programs, in-home services, senior health and wellness initiatives, advocacy, resources and referral services.

Dorothy C. Benson, who passed in November 2018, served as first Board Chair of Senior Services North Fulton. Her mission was to actively work on behalf of older adults. She was often seen on panels at community meetings, voicing her support for services for older adults.

In 2016 we celebrated our 25th anniversary of serving seniors in North Fulton. We are honored by our many generous and compassionate volunteers who have been engaged with the organization for as many years. Volunteers are at the heart of our organization and without them we could not carry out our mission.
