Our Vision Statement:
Senior Link Midland will improve the
quality of life for seniors in Midland
Senior Link Midland is a private, non-profit agency that offers a variety of programs designed to meet recognized needs of the older population in Midland.
We look to serve individuals which are not being acted upon by other agencies, organizations or churches so that no one goes without help.
We work to improve quality of life for seniors in Midland and help them maintain health, dignity and independence as they grow older.
We depend largely on the generosity of our community to operate.

Community and Senior Services (CSS) was initiated as an outreach project of First Christian Church in 1974 and later incorporated as a stand-alone nonprofit in 1982. The donation of the Fuhrman-Vogel Center in 1987 allowed an expansion of programs and the addition of a large commercial kitchen to prepare meals for three local senior centers and Meals On Wheels.
CSS joined the Midland United Way in 1988. The Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) started in 1994 to recruit and place senior volunteers with local nonprofit agencies. Federal funding to begin the Foster Grandparent and the Senior Companion Volunteer Programs was received in 2001 and 2003, respectively.
In 2013, CSS provided 156,079 meals to individuals and senior centers; 95,674 units of service through homebound programs and senior centers and 208,291 hours of community service through RSVP, Senior Companions and Foster Grandparents.
In 2015 the organization launched a rebranding effort which include changing the name to Senior Link Midland. The new name lets newcomers to Midland learn of our many services to older adults while reminding residents we are “more than a meal” with Senior Corps, Homebound Services, and Senior Centers.
