SOS Remembrance Lunch 2013

The Senior Outreach Services held a Volunteer Remembrance Luncheon to honor those volunteers who passed away remembering the legacy they left behind, while at the same time recognizing the volunteers who continue to support vulnerable elders in the community. The service is held every year to help us reflect on those recently passed individuals that help our organization grow and succeed every year. The SOS Remembrance Luncheon 2013 happened on May 8th.

Education Talk Series


Senior Outreach Services presents five Education Talks annually.  Our goal is to make you an educated consumer so that you can share these important resources and the information gained with friends, family and your clients.

 

On March 11, 2014, members of the community came together to watch Mary Liveratti speak about where seniors can find help on a state, local, and national level through a variety of programs. Liveratti is the former deputy director of the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services and now serves as the state President of AARP in Nevada. She is seen as an authority on senior services in Nevada and has devoted her life to providing for seniors.

 

Below are a few useful links that Liveratti discussed in her speech:
