Mission Statement

PSS's mission is to strengthen the capacity of older New Yorkers, their families, and communities to thrive!

Guide and support family caregivers in their crucial and often challenging role. Enhance the bonds and the potential of kinship families. Affirm inclusivity. Continue to honor our roots in social service, volunteerism, and community. Commit to being nimble, collaborative, and creative so we can meet the changing needs of those we serve.

Value the contributions of staff and commit to their professional development and well-being.

Description

PSS was founded in 1962 as Presbyterian Senior Services by volunteers to serve older members of their church community. Today, PSS is an innovative, multi-service nonprofit 501(c)(3) agency whose mission is to strengthen the capacity of older New Yorkers, their families, and communities to thrive. PSS has over 70 dedicated staff and over 250 committed volunteers and interns. With a $6+ million annual budget, we are able to run ten busy community centers for older adults, family caregiver and kinship family support programs through PSS Circle of Care, two residences - including the first one purposefully built for grandparents raising grandchildren - and Coming of Age NYC’s popular educational programs that inspire adults 50+ to live with passion and purpose.
