Senior Citizens of Marion County, Inc.

Serving Marion County 60+ Residents for over 50 years

         The Senior Citizens of Marion County, Inc. received a Ford Foundation grant on September 6, 1960 to start senior centers and aging service programs.





In 1974 the Nutrition Meal Program was added to four of the established Senior Centers.

  • In 1979 the Dept. for Elderly (now Dept on Aging) was set up to administrate Mill Levy funds among the eleven senior centers with the approval of a 12-Member Board and County Commissioners
  • Provide matching funds for the Senior Care Act Program administrated by North Central Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging.
  • This organization supports and encourages healthy independent living.
