Since 1984, the Mission of the Northeast Senior Assistance (NESA) is to assist persons sixty years and beyond living in the northeast San Antonio area who are isolated and lack adequate social support. Volunteers provide needed services, including medical appointment transportation, grocery delivery services, and minor home repairs to help clients live independently in their own homes.
NESA is an ecumenical organization, sponsored by area churches, local business and civic organizations and local government which is designed and organized to deliver the services identified in the mission statement.
We have been apart of the United Way agency since July 2015.
