SBSS Staying Cool for the Summer

St. Barnabas Senior Services (SBSS), would like to thank City Councilmember Gil Cedillo and the City of Los Angeles for generously granting us with the funding greatly needed for our HVAC repairs. SBSS Mid-City has been serving low-income older adults for more than 100 years. During those notorious California summers accompanied by heat waves reaching over 90 degrees, we provided our participants with a safe place to stay cool. Thank you to the City and to Councilmember Gil Cedillo for helping us keep the community safe this summer!

Our programs are a lifeline for older adults who live in impoverished communities and are often isolated.  With this generous award, we are able to continue providing the community with the resources they need to Live Well, Feel Well and Age Well.

Thank you Wells Fargo for helping our participants with computer training! Susie, Ari, Waiman and Grace did a fantastic job being mindful, caring, and resourceful. Whether it was helping older adults follow along in the class or answering individual questions, our older adults were able to take away valuable skills and tools to carry on. Thank you for spending your afternoon with us to help us bridge the digital divide!
