St. Anthony Park Area Seniors (SAPAS) offers many supportive services for seniors and caregivers so that they can maintain their independence. Most of our services are provided by our volunteers. We do not charge a fee to receive any of these services, but do accept donations. We serve adults 60+ who reside within our boundaries. We also serve caregivers of adults 60+ if the caregiver or the adult 60+ lives within our boundaries.
Here is a list of our most frequently requested services. This is not an exhaustive list, so if you have a request, give us a call to see if we might have a volunteer who could provide the support that you are seeking.
