Located behind the Super S in Startzville, TX, Habitat for Safe Seniors began in 2004 with a few volunteers and a limited range of senior citizens we could assist. Today, our operations have tripled in size, allowing us to reach a far greater number of elderly in our area. To date, our programs have been limited to the nutrition program including an emergency pantry service, a thrift store, and a senior center. We consistently adjust these programs, operations and procedures to meet as many needs as possible.
2010 has our attention driven towards our nutrition program and emergency pantry services. Unlike other food banks who distribute food on a monthly or quarterly basis, we distribute food weekly in order to meet the needs of our seniors. Because this service provides such a basic necessity and as a result has more than tripled the number we serve, emergency pantry has recently become our main focus.
