FY 2021-2022 Annual Budget

Organizational Chart

Description

In cooperation with Meals on Wheels (formerly Senior Citizens Services of Greater Tarrant County, Inc.) and other organizations, Senior Services provides multiple services and activities for the senior citizens of White Settlement and surrounding areas. Services include hot meals, transportation, health screenings, educational and informational programs, crafts, legal advice, exercise and fitness opportunities, referrals to other agencies for needed assistance and a host of other social activities and support services. All of this is designed to afford senior adults opportunities to continue to utilize their considerable wisdom, experience, and talents in productive, worthwhile, and rewarding ways.
