Community Based Programs

REAL Services began providing services for older adults 50 years ago when we developed the 1st nutrition site in the country. This program served as a model for nutrition assistance used across the country. Since then, based on needs of the community, additional programs have been developed, like Transportation, Meals on Wheels and 38 Senior Nutrition Sites.
