In an effort to slow down the spread of COVID-19, some services will not be offered until further notice.  Please call the SAPAS office at 651-642-9052 if you have a request and wonder if we can satisfy it.

We serve adults 60+ who reside within our boundaries or who come into our boundaries for events and activities.  We also serve caregivers of adults 60+ if the caregiver or the adult 60+ lives within our boundaries.
