Thank you Wells Fargo for helping our participants with computer training! Susie, Ari, Waiman and Grace did a fantastic job being mindful, caring, and resourceful. Whether it was helping older adults follow along in the class or answering individual questions, our older adults were able to take away valuable skills and tools to carry on. Thank you for spending your afternoon with us to help us bridge the digital divide!
For over 100 years, SBSS has served older adults with dignity and compassion. We're now partnering with 24Hr HomeCare to bring you an in-home care option you know you can trust.
A few hours a day or 24/7 in-home care can mean a world of difference to older adults and people with disabilities, and their families. SBSS HomeCare provides the right support so you or your loved one can maintain independence in the comfort of your own home. We provide non-medical, in-home care services for anyone needing assistance with activities of daily living.

Thank you to Fujitsu ScanSnap Cyber-Seniors Documentary and Bresee Foundation for partnering with us for Preserving Memories Day! This event helped our clients save their memories and share them with friends and family online.
Students from the Bresee Foundation Best Buy Tech Program were paired with an older adult and assisted them with scanning their photos, documents, and belongings so they could have the items digitally, and not lose important and sentimental documents.

ABC7 covered St. Barnabas Senior Services Aging Into the Future 2017 event!
We had more than 330 people join us for our inaugural AGING INTO THE FUTURE conference and have received a great deal of positive feedback. SBSS will be working hard in the next year to curate and design an even stronger conference experience with aging experts and the tech & innovation community to bring tech and older adults together and close the digital divide.

SBSS is grateful to the Bank of America Foundation for its generous support and belief in our work. With the help of Bank of America’s basic needs grant, SBSS will be able to provide nutritional services to older adults at risk of hunger and malnutrition.
“Food insecurity affects individuals and families in unique ways, and aging adults can be especially vulnerable,” said Raul A. Anaya, Los Angeles market president, Bank of America. “We know when someone has to choose between paying a bill or putting food on their table, that the road to financial security can be rocky. That is why Bank of America supports nonprofits like SBSS that alleviate such uncertainties so folks struggling can get back on the road to stability to lead fulfilling, active lives as they age.”
Ending hunger for older adults is a priority for SBSS. Each year, the Nutrition Program helps more than 6,000 low income older adults avoid hunger and malnutrition by providing hot lunches at 14 meal sites, home delivered meals, and monthly food pantries. SBSS' programs provide a lifeline for many older adults who are one setback away from entering a crisis. Older adults in our community are experiencing an increasing need for services that help them meet their most basic needs. With the assistance of the Bank of America Foundation, SBSS will be able to help many older adults in the Los Angeles area.
