Join a Cause
Seniors are going hungry. The reasons are complex. They range from finances to physical limitations to transportation. SAGA recognizes the need and works to coordinate food sources and delivery to meet the senior hunger epidemic. There is a need to adapt the size of products for seniors. SAGA is breaking down the barriers that prevent seniors from cooking and eating as they did in earlier years.
Transportation is the biggest challenge area seniors face. It is placed ahead of health and social isolation. SAGA is actively collaborating with the community to address this critical need.
Seniors get free rides provided by the Outreach Program for Ahwatukee Seniors, Y OPAS, to a local business to buy groceries, pick up medicine and have coffee on senior discount day.
Reduced rate rides offered by the Ahwatukee Recreation Center, ARC, to run errands and go to appointments within a specified mile radius.
