Our mission is to help people age successfully!

Overview

Recipient of the J.C. Penney Golden Rule Award and recognized by the Georgia Legislature as a Center of Excellence and a model program for seniors in the state, Senior Citizens, Inc. is the region’s largest non-profit agency dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for all senior citizens. Helping people age successfully has been the mission and the model for Senior Citizens, Inc. for over 60 years.

Humble Beginnings

It all started in 1959, when founder Harley C. Morrison noticed that many seniors in his own neighborhood could no longer prepare meals for themselves and recognized the negative affect that this had on their general health. Morrison gathered a group of friends to help him make sack lunches and then delivered those meals to 13 homebound seniors. It did not take long for Morrison to realize that the need for meals and other support services to assist with the challenge of aging extended much past his own neighborhood. In fact, the need was becoming increasingly evident throughout the city and county.

Out of those humble beginnings, Morrison’s vision grew into an agency that now serves more than 10,000 seniors each year and offers a wide variety of programs including:

• Meals on Wheels

• Transportation

In-Home Support (e.g. housekeepers, personal grooming, etc.)

• Senior Companions Program

• Ruth F. Byck Adult Day Care Center

• Senior Activity Centers

• The Learning Center

• Family Advocates

Over the years, Senior Citizens, Inc. has grown from a small neighborhood effort into a non-profit organization that serves thousands throughout a four-county area.
