Services for Seniors

Nearly one in three Americans age 65 years or older live in low-income households. To make matters even more difficult, healthcare and housing costs are high, and place a huge strain on the fixed budgets of many of our senior neighbors.

North Kent Connect is working to help seniors by providing specially tailored programs to meet their needs. Review our Schedule of Services for the next senior event.

Many of these programs are in partnership with Senior Meals (link below). For more information on these programs, or to sign up for Senior Meals on Wheels, please call (616) 459-3111.

Senior Pantry

Our senior pantry provides for low-income individuals age 60 and older. Pantries are held the third Thursday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. A $1.00 donation is requested for each visit.
