Seniors in Service was proud to be selected out of over 100 nominations for a 2023 Florida Blue Sapphire Award! This award recognizes outstanding organizations that are distinguished by exemplary leadership, innovation, and documented outcomes in creating excellence in services in Mental Well-being.
The Sapphire Award is a testament to the unwavering commitment and empathetic care our volunteers provide to the people they serve every day. Our Resource Advocates help vulnerable individuals navigate the complex maze of community resources to access safe housing, nutritious food, transportation and more, reducing stress and supporting self-sufficiency. Our Senior Companion volunteers provide friendship for isolated seniors, improving their mental-well-being through social connection. Our volunteers who are veterans leverage their shared military experience to encourage and support fellow veterans, active military members, and their families.
Our tutors and mentors help struggling students build the emotional intelligence they need for academic and lifelong success.
Volunteering results in better mental well-being for both volunteers and beneficiaries, helping them build new friendships, sustain healthy relationships, and lead meaningful lives!
