Human Services Association (HSA)

The Home Delivered Meals program provides homebound seniors with a daily hot meal and a reassuring friendly visit. Human Services Association (HSA) drivers are trained to observe any danger signs and report them back to the agency. For many seniors, a home delivered meal increases their sense of independence and prevents premature institutionalization. Meal recipients also receive holiday gift baskets and other holiday treats.
