Berkeley Senior Services is a non-profit agency offering a network of services enabling seniors (60+) to remain independent participating members of our community.  Our agency hours are 8:00 – 4:00, Monday through Friday.  The requirements of our programs and services may vary according to our funding sources and federal and state criteria, such as the Older American’s Act.  We could not provide our programs and services without our valuable volunteers.  Have some spare time?  Want to do something productive and meaningful to serve others and your community?  Perhaps one of the areas below may seem appealing to you!
