Community Services is your connection to provide helpful resources in all areas of healthy and independent living. We provide many types of transportation for residents including routine trips for senior citizens and summertime youth programs.

We support the independence of our senior community by providing programming to enhance their social, emotional, nutritional and physical well-being. We serve the entire community with information on aging, support for family caregivers and sensitive approaches to aging issues.

Additionally, we compliment the lives of our youth residents through the transportation to Summer School and Safety Town.
