Our Mission: Senior Services of Central Illinois (SSCI) is a not-for-profit organization supporting and serving seniors with non-medical services to promote independent living and enrich quality of life.
Our Vision: For almost 50 years, Senior Services of Central Illinois has supported seniors living independently. Through offerings to support basic needs, encourage healthy living and enriching lives with socialization, the agency offers the convenience of meeting multiple needs in one agency. The work of Senior Services is important to the community and often crucial to the individuals it supports and serves.
Those served: We focus on serving seniors, recognizing this population has diverse needs and desires. We prioritize the use of resources to meet those diversities through: Basic physical and life needs; healthy lifestyle promotion; and life enrichment through activities, socialization and lifelong learning. Although primary focus is to serve seniors we recognize the regulatory and funding source requirements which necessitate expanding service to other populations and support service expansion when it allows the agency to fulfill its mission and does not impede its ability to serve and support seniors.
People Resources: Qualified and engaged staff is essential for the agency to fulfill its mission. Acknowledging limitations of fiscal resources, we commit to providing a comprehensive reward package including financial, environmental and career elements.
Financial Resources: Sustained, unrestricted funding is vital for SSCI to respond to the needs of those served. We will establish and implement a plan to grow the availability of unrestricted funds.
Physical Resources: We will increase our space and will include a full-serve fitness facility.
Technical Resources: The continued expansion of technology provides an added opportunity to serve and support seniors and increase the efficiency of current offerings. We will use technology to provide greater access to on-line information and services for clients.
Marketing: We will create and implement a communication strategy to share the message about services provided to seniors.
