Senior Charity Care Foundation is looking for people who want to give back to the greatest generation and obtain real-world experience by serving seniors. 

 



Service Description: In the state of Utah, over 200,000 of our seniors live in poverty. Unable to afford basic health, dental and vision costs, many suffer in silence. Some have little to no family support, and make due with minimal and insufficient public assistance. Founded in 2011, Senior Charity Care Foundation (SCCF) has stepped in to help fill this gap. Our medical dental clinics currently serve dozens of care facilities and senior apartments in Northern Utah, treating hundreds of seniors on a donated or heavily subsidized basis. We are looking to expand the breadth and quality of our services-including our new vision and audiology programs.
