Community Based Programs

REAL Services began providing services for older adults more than 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 added, like Transportation, Meals on Wheels and Senior Nutrition Sites.
