Welcome to Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia!
Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia is the regional organization in South Hampton Roads that supports and enriches the lives of seniors and their families through advocacy, education, information, and comprehensive services. For almost half a century, we’ve changed the lives of tens of thousands of the region’s seniors for the better. We’ve served more than two million meals, contributed more than six million hours of senior volunteer services, driven seniors more than 11 million miles, and helped thousands of seniors live in their homes independently as an alternative to nursing home care.
At Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia, our goal is to develop and provide comprehensive, coordinated programs that assist seniors, their families, and caregivers. It is our mission to help seniors to live with choice and dignity in their communities. Our vision is that the South Hampton Roads will become a livable community for all ages.

Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia is celebrating the 15th annual March for Meals, a month-long celebration of local Meals on WheelsTM programs throughout the nation that shines the spotlight on the issues of senior isolation and food insecurity.
In South Hampton Roads as well as across Virginia, thousands of senior adults live alone, sometimes in or near poverty, and struggle to stay healthy. They rely on the vital safety net provided by local Meals on Wheels programs such as Senior Services and other organizations in the community who provide access to nutritious home-delivered meals and weekday congregate meals at area senior centers.
During the month of March, Senior Services will actively promote awareness of the issues and fundraise to support its Meals on Wheels and senior center nutrition programs. The week of March 20-24, the agency will be celebrating "Community Champions Week," inviting local city officials and celebrities to come out to senior center nutrition sites to visit with center participants, chat with them about their needs, and help center staff serve the luncheon meal. Plans are now being made for celebrations in Portsmouth and Franklin.
"The services that we provide to seniors in the South Hampton Roads region are critical and the need is rapidly increasing," said Senior Services CEO John Skirven. "Working together, we can keep our region's seniors living independently, healthier at home and feeling more connected to their communities as they age."
