Mission Statement

Our Motto is...Helping the lives of seniors through acts of kindness. Having senior parents on a fixed income and seeing first hand the struggles that they and their peers were having trying to make ends meet, we soon realized the sad fact that the assistance for seniors was very hard to come by so we decided to take action and started Smiles for Seniors Foundation. Our mission is to alleviate some of the pressure and fear that many seniors have of financially not having enough to survive or having to choose between medication and rent. This does not have to happen, that is where we come in, Smiles for Seniors Foundation will put a smile on the faces of those who need it most, our seniors.

Program 1

Our major operating program is our General Fund in which we assist low income seniors financially at their time of need. We are here to help when everyday expenses arise and do not fit in to their budget such as; minor home and auto repair,food,gas, utility payments and life saving medication just to name a few. We also hold events through out the year. Every Holiday season we hold our Stockings for Seniors Program. This is when we bring stockings full of goodies to seniors living in convalescent homes. The "UMBRELLA AWARDS" is our awards dinner for those who do good works in our community. We also hold a bowling tournament.
