Mission: We help seniors to live with choice and dignity in their communities.
Vision: South Hampton Roads will become a livable community for all ages.
Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia is the Area Agency on Aging serving residents of Chesapeake, Franklin, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach and Isle of Wight and Southampton counties. Senior Services develops and operates coordinated programs that assist seniors 60 and older, their families and caregivers, and serves as a resource center for adults with disabilities.
Helping Older Virginians Live Independently
Entering our 35th year, Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia is the regional organization in South Hampton Roads that supports and enriches the lives of older Virginians and their families through advocacy, education, information and comprehensive services. For one-third of a century, we've changed the lives of tens of thousands of the region's seniors for the better. We've served over two million meals, contributed more than five million hours of senior volunteer services, driven seniors over 10 million miles and helped thousands of seniors live in their homes independently as an alternative to nursing home care.
Senior Services advocates for seniors each and every day.
That means, you will hear about us in the news, informing seniors of issues that affect their lives. Through community partnerships with businesses, health care providers and other agencies, you will find us finding new ways to improve seniors' lives. You will see our staff, advisory council members and board members playing key roles in statewide and regional coalitions and commissions on aging. And you will discover us hard at work addressing issues on aging to put before the Virginia General Assembly.
Who We Are
A private, nonprofit organization, Senior Services provides services for older residents in Chesapeake, Franklin, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach, and Isle of Wight and Southampton counties. Senior Services receives funding from federal, state, municipal and private sources.
Our organization dates to 1968 when the Senior Citizens Service Center incorporated as a 501(c) (3) organization to serve the needs of seniors and their families and caregivers in South Hampton Roads. In 1972, the name changed to the Southeastern Virginia Areawide Model Program, or SEVAMP, and was designated as the Area Agency on Aging in 1973. Our name changed once again, in 1997, to Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia.
