Senior Service America, Inc. (SSAI) is committed to making it possible for low-income and other disadvantaged older adults to participate fully in determining their own future and the future of their communities. We trace our roots to the National Council of Senior Citizens, launched in 1962 to advocate for older Americans. We are now the only national entity dedicated exclusively to the employment of workers 50+. Headquartered in Silver Spring, Md., near Washington, D.C., we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headed by President and CEO Gary A. Officer and a board of directors.
