About Cincinnati Area Senior Services:

Cincinnati Area Senior Services is a non-profit agency that eliminates barriers that prevent seniors from keeping their independence. We provide financial management, transportation, Meals-On-Wheels, guardianship, congregate meals and the social interaction seniors need to stay connected to society. CASS continues to be Greater Cincinnati’s leader in providing support services to seniors in the Cincinnati community. Requests for our services are increasing; however, funding is not keeping pace with the growing number of seniors who request help daily with food, financial management, transportation, and social programs. CASS relies on community support and the financial contributions of those who believe in supporting aging adults who need help.
