We Embrace Senior Citizens

"Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life." Proverbs 16:31

A hot meal. A warm smile. A place to Belong.

Every day, dozens of senior citizens gather at our Senior Nutrition Center for a hot, healthy meal. For many, it's the only nutritious meal they receive each day. Some of the men and women have been utilizing this service for years. Others are stopping in for their first time. Regardless, we go out of our way to make them feel welcome.

Although senior citizens can easily become lonely and isolated, The Salvation Army of Silicon Valley facilitates community and reminds each and every person that they're important. In addition to well-planned meals, we also facilitate field trips, play games, throw fun holiday parties, provide HDTV and DVDs, and so much more.

"We found a warm, welcoming place"

"My wife and I are homeless and currently living in our car. If it was not for The Salvation Army's Senior Nutrition Program, we would not have a safe place to eat a good healthy meal on a daily basis. As the Senior Program, we have found a warm, welcoming place where we have made good friends and have a place to go to keep us off of the streets. I'm thankful that The Salvation Army of Silicon Valley provides a place for seniors like us to come for safety and a place of community." -Seniors MaryEllen & Joe

Our Senior Programs

Our seniors program in San Jose is one of fun and fellowship. Here are some of the fun activities that people can participate in throughout the year. In the future, we hope to also offer drawing and crafts classes.
