Outreach Programs for Aging Seniors (Y-OPAS)

Y-OPAS is a community effort offering FREE support services to seniors and their caregivers with services provided by community volunteers, like you. The mission of Y-OPAS is to enable seniors to maintain independent living in their own homes as long as possible.
