Under the sponsorship of Jefferson County Department of Social Services, the Retired and Senior Volunteer program (RSVP) began handling inquiries about various senior services and volunteer opportunities. Staff members started discussing the value of, and need for, a multi-service agency for seniors.
In 1978, Seniors' Resource Center, Inc. (SRC) originally started as a service provider for the elderly and was an outgrowth of RSVP. RSVP, along with its Tel-A-Sure, Tax Assistance, Minor Home Repair and Hand-in-Hand programs, joined with the Senior Wheels Transportation Service, 55+ Employment Program and Legal Services and moved to Kendall Street offices to work together under the direction of Jefferson County Social Services. An agency was formed to meet the need for accessible, coordinated and centralized services for older county residents.
